After meeting with gubernatorial candidates Kathy Hochul, Jumaane Williams, and Tom Suozzi, the Executive Committee of the Manhattan Democratic Party voted today to endorse Governor Kathy Hochul to a full term as Governor of the Great State of New York in the 2022 Democratic Primary. “Governor Kathy Hochul has a long history of building relationships in New York County,” said County Leader Keith L.T. Wright. “Kathy Hochul’s ability to speak to the range of issues of interest to the diverse executive committee of the Manhattan Democratic Party speaks to her leadership and we could not be prouder to endorse her as Governor.”
“I’m honored to be endorsed by the Manhattan Democrats who represent the core values of our party and are firmly committed to advancing opportunity for all,” said Governor Kathy Hochul. “Their grassroots organizing across Manhattan has helped expand and strengthen our party, and I look forward to working together to ensure Democratic victories up and down the ticket this year.”
The New York State Democratic Committee will meet on February 16th and 17th to endorse its nominee. A primary election is slated to be held on June 28, 2022; and the general election is expected to occur on November 8, 2022.
