Election 2022: Gov. Hochul campaigns with former President Bill Clinton in downtown Brooklyn
Gov. Kathy Hochul pulled out all the stops Saturday as Election Day nears, including a campaign appearance from former President Bill Clinton who stumped for her in downtown Brooklyn.
Dozens of people came out to show their support in what has become a competitive race between Hochul, who is seeking her first four-year term in office, and her opponent Republican candidate Lee Zeldin.
Hochul has heavily focused her campaign on abortion rights and public safety. Zeldin, on the other hand, is a congressman and ally of former President Donald trump. He has tightened the race in recent weeks after focusing on rising violent crimes across New York.
Democrats hoped the rally will help them garner momentum and encourage New Yorkers to get out and vote.
A Siena College poll from as recent as mid-October shows Hochul with a lead over Zeldin.
