    Gov. Kathy Hochul would win support from nearly half of registered Democrats in a hypothetical primary race if it were held today, the Siena College poll said, collecting 46% of the vote. The same poll showed former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio with 12% of the vote, New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams with 11% of the vote and Rep. Tom Suozzi with 6% of the vote.

    North Country Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Schuylerville) missed a couple of votes in Congress this week. In an official letter, Stefanik said she couldn’t vote in person “due to the ongoing public health emergency.” But that was on Tuesday, the same day she attended a campaign fundraiser in person with former President Trump in Florida where most guests weren’t wearing masks.
