Local Democrats on the results of Tuesday's primary election
This week, Republicans and Democrats chose their candidates for New York Governor. Republican Lee Zeldin and Democrat Kathy Hochul will top the ballot, and the candidates emphasized very different themes during their Tuesday-night victory speeches. Hochul was opposed in her primary by candidates who attempted to outflank to both the right and left. Zeldin won with a plurality of votes, defeating Trump-allied Andrew Giuliani.
We welcome guests from both parties to discuss not only their candidates, but the issues they think should animate the campaign this year. This hour, we hear from Democrats:
- Valerie Brechko, co-chair of the Yates County Democratic Committee
- Ravi Mangla, senior communications manager for the New York Working Families Party
- Elaine Spaull, executive director of the Center for Youth, and former member of Rochester City Council
- Rich Stewart, co-chair of the Yates County Democratic Committee
