New York Gov. Kathy Hochul speaks during a New York governor primary debate at the studios of WNBC4-TV, June, 16, 2022, in New York. New Yorkers are casting votes in a governor’s race Tuesday, June 28, 2022, that for the first time in a decade does not include the name “Cuomo” at the top of the ticket.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) is projected to sail to victory in her primary on Tuesday, defeating Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-N.Y.) and New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams. 

The Associated Press called the race at 9:25 p.m. EDT.

Hochul, who would be the first woman elected to the governor’s office if she wins the general election, is heavily favored to win in November. She enters the general election in the blue state with a large cash and incumbency advantage. 

Hochul took office last year after former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations and questions about COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes. Despite leaving his office in disgrace, Cuomo continuously floated the idea of a comeback. However, he has yet to launch any bid for political office.
