Kathleen Hochul wins the Democratic primary

After the ballots are counted

New York State's incumbent governor Kathleen Courtney Hochul wins the primary to represent the Democratic Party in the upcoming gubernatorial election. This is reported by The Washington Post.

According to the newspaper, Hochul, 63, gained 67.4% of the votes, while her closest competitor, attorney-at-law Jumaane D. Williams, managed to win with only 20% of the votes. Congressman Thomas Richard Suozzi got 12.6% of the vote.

Among the Republicans in the race for Governor, congressman Lee Michael Zeldin won with 43.3% of the vote after 65% of the ballots. He is followed by Andrew Harold Giuliani, son of Rudolph Giuliani, former mayor of New York and lawyer to the 45th US President Donald Trump, with 23.2% of the vote.

The New York gubernatorial election will be held on 8 November. If she wins, Kathleen Courtney Hochul could become the 1st elected female governor of this state.

She took the oath of office as governor of NY State last August, becoming the first woman to hold the post. She succeeds Andrew Cuomo, who has led the state since 2010. Under NY state law, the lieutenant governor takes over from her boss in the event of his early resignation.

State Attorney General Letitia James announced in early August that an investigation by her office found that former Governor Andrew Cuomo had molested several girls, including his subordinates. He has not pleaded guilty but has decided to resign. The state prosecutor's office has not yet filed any charges against the politician.
