New York Metropolis Mayor Eric Adams endorsed New York Gov. Kathy Hochul for a full time period on Wednesday, praising her as “an amazing governor” who deserves a full time period.
Adams, a centrist Democrat like Hochul, instructed supporters at a Manhattan union corridor that voters want somebody who can “get stuff done in the state of New York.”
Hochul, the previous lieutenant governor, is operating to maintain the job she has held since August 2021 when Andrew Cuomo resigned amid allegations of sexual harassment, which he has denied.
Hochul faces New York Metropolis Public Advocate Jumaane Williams and Rep. Tom Suozzi of Lengthy Island within the June 28 Democratic main.
She stated in a information launch that she and Adams “are proving what a strong partnership can achieve when leaders are united in delivering results for New Yorkers.”
Hochul stated she and Adams “are committed to building a new chapter in our state’s history that’s focused on teamwork, collaboration, and progress over politics.”
