The New York Democratic Party Chairman Jay Jacobs has announced that he is endorsing current Governor Kathy Hochul for the 2022 governor’s race. Jacobs’s announcement was made yesterday morning during a news conference, saying that Governor Kathy Hochul should keep the job she inherited from former Gov. Andrew Cuomo in late August.
In the conference, Jay Jacobs stated: “She can do the job. We see that. Not only that, but I believe she can be a great governor…She has earned our support. Let’s face it. Kathy Hochul in her seven years as lieutenant governor has been to every single county… I believe that a party torn apart by multiple candidates in multiple primaries for multiple offices will exhaust precious resources, divide us and make us weaker in a year that we need to be at our strongest.”
