New York: New York State Governor Kathy Hochul led by a big margin in Democratic primary election, taking one step closer towards seeking a full term in November.

“I’m deeply honored to be the Democratic nominee for Governor of New York. On to November!” said Hochul on her Twitter account.

Hochul won 67.1 per cent of votes, followed by 20.6 per cent for New York City public advocate Jumaane Williams and 12.3 percent for Congressman Thomas Suozzi from Long Island on Tuesday.

The data is based on results with around 50 per cent of votes counted, Xinhua news agency reported.

Born in 1958, Hochul served as New York State lieutenant governor since 2015 and became governor in August 2021 as former New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo resigned amid sexual harassment allegations.

Hochul is expected to win in the general election this November as New York State is in tight control of Democrats.
