Gov. Kathy Hochul and Rep. Lee Zeldin’s one-on-one debate Friday night in the contest for governor was quite harsh, as was to be expected.
The stakes in this election could not be any clearer, according to TEAM HOCHUL. Governor Hochul is utterly committed to safeguarding New Yorkers, advancing our state, and prioritizing progress above politics. Voters will turn out on November 8th and definitely reject Lee Zeldin and his MAGA agenda.
“On November 8th, New Yorkers will FIRE Kathy Hochul, and end one-party control, and preserve our state,” said Team Zeldin. Tonight was simply a preview of the fierce battles I will wage every day for our state. It’s not an option to lose.
In New York City, the discussion was presented by Spectrum News and mostly focused on the issues that have distinguished both campaigns: Hochul was accused by Zeldin of allowing crime to flourish in New York City and for not doing more to address the high cost of living in the state. Zeldin came by train, which he said smelled like marijuana. He was retaliated against by Hochul for being a staunch opponent of abortion rights and a supporter of former President Donald Trump.
Both were prepared to assault. Is Donald Trump a terrific president? was the cross-examination question Hochul selected, which served her interests well. Zeldin was encouraged to list a number of projects he was pleased to discuss with Trump, including border control, connections with Israel, and anti-gang programs.
Hochul said, referring to Trump’s unfavorability in his home state of New York, “I’ll take it as a resounding yes, and the folks of New York do not agree with you.”
Zeldin’s opening statement, “You’re poorer and less safe because of Kathy Hochul her radical policies,” set the tone for an hour of vehement criticism of practically every stance Hochul has made since taking office as governor 14 months ago.
Even while outside money is flowing to both campaigns in the last, crucial days, and early voting is set to begin on Saturday, the debate lacked any memorable moments that either campaign could easily point to as having an advantage. Zeldin has been significantly outraised and outspent by Hochul, but he has been able to flood the airwaves with $12 million from PACs that are on his side.
