Countdown to Primary Day. Voting takes place this week in the race for Governor. Hochul far and away leads the Democratic pack. She has a commanding lead over challengers Tom Suozzi and Jumaane WIlliams in the polls. She has outdistanced them in fund raising and major endorsements. Lee Zeldin is the favorite among Republicans. In a tighter race he leads rivals Rob Astorino, Harry Wilson and Andrew Guliani. Through it all Cuomo has remained uncharacteristically silent. He has refrained from endorsing any candidate. Suozzi says he would welcome the former Governor’s endorsement. Both Hochul and Williams give an emphatic thumbs down to his backing. Countdown to Primary Day. The results will determine the slate for the November general election !!
