Taking Nothing for Granted. Hochul urges supporters not to rest upon their laurels. With the primary a week away, she is the frontrunner. However, she fears complacency may keep voters at home. Her campaign has declared “imminent victory”. She is likely to trounce challengers Tom Suozzi and Jumaane Williams. Hochul has outdistanced them in fundraising, picking up an unprecedented 34 Million in 10 month. After spending heavily on television ads, she still has 12 Million on hand. She has also picked up most of the key endorsements. Still she counsels caution about the outcome. Her balanced approach is in stark contrast to Cuomo’s heavy handed tactics. He steamrolled his way to re-election through bullying and intimidation. Both of them relied heavily on large contributions from special interests doing business with the state. Taking Nothing for Granted. Hochul has witnessed how Cuomo thought he was on top of the world and then fell hard !!
