A football surprise from the rivals
The governor’s race between Democratic incumbent Kathy Hochul and Republican challenger Lee Zeldin has tightened. First lady Jill Biden campaigned for Hochul on Sunday IN NY, days after the president traveled there, while Florida’s Republican governor Ron DeSantis rallied for Congressman Zeldin on Saturday. Democrats are also under pressure to maintain governor’s spots in two traditionally blue states: Oregon and New Mexico. Democrats are eyeing Oklahoma as a possible gubernatorial pickup as that race becomes newly competitive.
