Gov. Kathy Hochul will square off against her Democratic rivals Tuesday night in a debate that will be televised on WCBS-TV.
The one-hour debate is the first of two that will feature all three Democrats. Rep. Tom Suozzi, D-Huntington, and Jumaane D. Williams, New York City’s public advocate, met in debate last week.
With the primary coming up June 28, Hochul has a strong lead over her opponents. But crime, the state’s red-flag law, abortion, taxes, and other topics are expected to be on the table.
The debate, set for 7 p.m. will be moderated by political reporter Marcia Kramer and anchor Maurice DuBois will be moderating, in partnership with Newsradio 880.
