64-Year Old Kathy Hochul Becomes First Elected Woman Governor Of New York

Kathy Hochul, 64, has become the first woman elected New York Governor.

The Democrat retains the office she assumed in August 2021 when her predecessor, Andrew Cuomo resigned.

Hochul defeated Republican congressman Lee Zeldin, an ally of ex-President Donald Trump.

“I’m not here to make history, I’m here to make a difference”, Hochul told supporters after her triumph.

“I may be New York’s first woman governor, but I know I won’t be the last”, she tweeted on Wednesday.

Hochul won the Democratic primary in June, defeating U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi of Long Island and Public Advocate Jumaane Williams.
