||Primary results for U.S. Senate, Governor, Lt. Governor, State House
Due to redistricting delays, primaries for U.S. House and State Senate will be August 23
The Senate Majority Leader, Democrat Chuck Schumer is seeking a 5th term. Unopposed for the nomination, the primary was canceled. The Republican nominee is former political news commentator Joe Pinion. He was selected at the party's convention earlier this year. Schumer is a heavy favorite in the November general election.
Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul succeeded Andrew Cuomo when he resigned in August, 2021. She is now seeking a full term in office. She has two primary opponents, Rep. Thomas Suozzi (NY-03) and Jumaane Williams, the New York City (NYC) Public Advocate.
Polling indicates Hochul will be renominated, although it is possible she may share the ticket with a Lieutenant Governor nominee not of her choosing. See the next section for more on that.
Four candidates are seeking the Republican nomination. Most polling has Rep. Lee Zeldin (NY-01) ahead, although a recent survey released by the well-regarded SurveyUSA showed Zeldin in a statistical tie with Andrew Giuliani, son of former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani. Also on the ballot are 2014 gubernatorial nominee Rob Astorino and businessman Harry Wilson.
Regardless of who emerges as the Republican nominee, Hochul will be a strong favorite in this deep blue state.
In New York, there are separate primary elections for governor and lieutenant governor; the pair then runs on a single ticket in the general election. This has created a bit of an interesting situation for the Democrats.
After she took office, Hochul appointed then State Sen. Brian Benjamin to be her lieutenant governor. Benjamin resigned in April after being indicted. Hochul then appointed former U.S. Rep. Anthony Delgado (NY-19); he took the oath of office in late May.
Delgado has two opponents on the primary ballot, most notably progressive activist Ana Maria Archila. She is gubernatorial candidate Jumaane Williams' running mate. While Williams is not expected to win, Archila appears to be competitive. If she were to win, Hochul would not share the ticket with her preferred running mate in the general election.
The Republican nominee will be Alison Esposito, a former NYPD deputy inspector.
Democrats hold a 106-43 margin over Republicans in the New York State Assembly. There is one member from the Independence Party. Members serve two-year terms.
There are also State Senate elections this year. Those primaries were rescheduled to August 23 due to delays in completing redistricting.
