NYS Democratic Chairman Jacobs backs Hochul for governor in 2022
New York State Democratic Chairman Jay S. Jacobs endorsed Gov. Kathy Hochul for the upcoming gubernatorial election.
He’s the second Long Island official to endorse her campaign. Richard Schaffer, the Suffolk Democratic County chairman, was the first.
During his announcement Monday morning, Jacobs said Hochul is a problem-solver who cares and treats everyone with respect.
Jay Jacobs also serves as the Nassau County Democratic chair.
Hochul replaced former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who resigned in the face of a sexual harassment scandal and a fast-moving impeachment process.
