New York Governor Kathy Hochul made a strange promise to New York voters on Tuesday; she vowed to fix the Empire State’s problems “first thing tomorrow.”
“This city is back and I want to lead this state into the next four years and possibly beyond with a sense of optimism we have not had here in a long time,” she said, adding “That will start first thing tomorrow morning.”
From The New York Post:
The remarks from the incumbent Democrat — who took office after a sexual harassment scandal forced ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo to resign — came when she was asked by a reporter to address voters “dismayed” by the race between her and GOP rival Lee Zeldin.
“It will be over tomorrow,” Hochul said, stating the obvious.
“I will feel a lot better about this city when all the ads stop — truly this has an effect on people.”
Zeldin and the super PACs supporting him have targeted Hochul with a barrage of ads promoting his tough-on-crime campaign platform — and blamed her for the decline in public safety in the city and elsewhere.
