NY poised to make history with Hochul-James race for governor

Kathy Hochul and Tish James
A New York governor's race between Kathy Hochul (left) and Tish James would be a historic moment in politics.

New York is poised to make history again. Not only do women hold the top two jobs in the state, but they are now running against each other for governor.

Granted, several Democratic candidates have announced their intentions for the governor's mansion, but when the dust settles, Gov. Kathy Hochul and state Attorney General Tish James would make a historic pairing in 2022.

WBFO's Marian Hetherly talked about a potential Hochul-James race with Lisa Parshall, a political science professor at Daemen College who is also section chair of state and local politics for the New York Political Science Association.
