Governor Hochul Announces Participation in General Election Debate

NEW YORK – Governor Kathy Hochul’s campaign today announced the governor’s participation in one statewide general election debate.

The campaign has accepted an invitation for a debate hosted by Spectrum News NY1 at Pace University on Tuesday, October 25 at 7:00 PM. Following Governor Hochul’s participation in two debates during the Democratic primary, the debate will serve as the governor’s third this year.

“Governor Hochul looks forward to highlighting the clear contrast between her strong record of delivering results and Lee Zeldin’s extreme agenda,” said Campaign Spokesman Jerrel Harvey. “While Zeldin continues to push his far-right plans to ban abortion and roll back commonsense gun safety laws, Governor Hochul remains committed to building a stronger, safer, and more affordable New York.”

The campaign will announce additional public forums and speaking engagements that the governor will participate in ahead of November.
