New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, a veteran left-wing politician who unsuccessfully ran for lieutenant governor in 2018, officially announced on Tuesday that he is running for governor of New York.

Williams released a two-minute video to launch his gubernatorial bid against incumbent governor Kathy Hochul.

In the video, Williams shows his plans on police reform and anti-establishment bona fides.

Right now, our state needs to move forward from a pandemic, from an era of scandal and from the old ways of governing that have failed so many for so long,” Williams said.

“There’s a movement building in New York, a courageous, progressive movement that challenges the powerful and helps restore that power to the people — a movement I’m proud to be a part of,” Williams added.

Aside from Hochul, Williams is set to face State Attorney General Letitia James, whose monumental sexual harassment probe led to disgraced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s resignation, officially launched her bid last month and lame-duck Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has for months not ruled out running for governor, has also taken steps toward a statewide run.
