New York gubernatorial race survey front-runner Kathy Hochul is feeling good.
On Sunday, Democratic U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries has issued a statement supporting Hochul in the New York governor’s race.
Jeffries, who represents Brooklyn and Queens, said Hochul is a “tireless advocate for all New Yorkers.”
Aside from Jeffries, ten other Democratic members of the state’s House delegation have endorsed Hochul, who became governor in August when then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo resigned.
York City’s elected public advocate Jumaane Williams is expected to challenge Hochul in the race.
Williams has recently won the endorsement of the progressive Working Families Party.
Also out to challenge Hochul in the Democratic primary is U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi, who represents Long Island and has criticized Hochul for not doing more to address crime levels in New York City.
