Usa: Hochul accepts dem nominations for New York governor

Hillary Clinton’s push: “Isn’t it time for the state to elect a female governor?”

Kathy Hochul accepts the Democratic nomination for the race to become governor of New York. The first woman to lead the state, Hochul was almost unknown when she took office last summer in place of Andrew Cuomo. With the nomination, Hochul races to become the first woman to be elected governor of New York. Hillary Clinton announcing Hochul’s nomination said: “Isn’t it time for the state that started the suffragette movement to elect a female governor?”

Sixty-three on August 27, a Catholic of Irish descent (her grandparents emigrated a century ago), two children, Hochul is the first tenant of the Albany government building in over a century to have experience of local politics, chewed on for over a decade in the rooms of the city council of Hamburg, a suburb of Buffalo. “Energizing Bunny” they called her then because of her workaholic. She who has also seen herself in New York: she has visited over and over again all 62 counties of the state. Hochul is used to surprising those who underestimate her, as Steve Israel, a former congressman and democratic political strategist, tells in The Hill.
