Countdown to Primary Day

Countdown to Primary Day. The gubernatorial Primary will be held on Tuesday. All indications are that Hochul will get the Democratic nod for Governor. She far outdistances her rivals in the polls. The Republican race is much tighter. Lee Zeldin leads the pack by much smaller margin. The outcome will set the slate of candidates for the November. It will be the first statewide election since Cuomo resigned in disgrace last summer. He sits on the sidelines, having been uncharacteristically silent on the selection of his successor. It is unclear whether he will campaign for Hochul. She has already said she will refuse his endorsement. At stake is the leadership of New York in the post covid era. Hot button issues such as abortion rights, gun control, and economic recovery hang in the balance. Countdown to Primary Day. The end result will influence state politics for years to come !!
