Passionate voters speak out at Biden-Hochul rally in Sarah Lawrence College
It was a peaceful gathering outside of Sarah Lawrence College as a mostly pro-Democratic crowd waited hours for a chance to see President Joe Biden and Gov. Kathy Hochul.
Voters said they hoped to hear more about Hochul's plan for the economy, education, and public safety -- if New Yorkers elect her to a full term.
"Blue states need to really unite with each other and fight this wave, you know, this craziness that's going on in America," said Hochul supporter Cirilo Grullon.
"The people just have to ban together and go out. Don't lose faith, don't lose hope. Just go out there and vote like your life depends on it," said Michael Cancel, another Hochul supporter.
Biden's historic appearance in Yonkers was the latest push from Democrats to motivate their party to go out and vote.
"This is a close election. Westchester is in play and you can't win Westchester unless you win Yonkers," said Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano.
Several supporters of Republican gubernatorial challenger Rep. Lee Zeldin and former President Donald Trump also made their voices heard.
"Zeldin, at least he's saying the right things. Let's give him a shot. See what he does," said Zeldin supporter Larry Talt.
Both Biden and Hochul expressed urgency for voters to turn out with the polling, which shows a too-close-for comfort governor's race and several Hudson Valley congressional seats in jeopardy of flipping from blue to red.
