She hasn't even moved into the Executive Mansion yet, but Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul already has her eye on the 2022 race for governor.

Hochul, who will take over for Governor Cuomo on August 24th, says she intends to seek a full four-year term. Cuomo is ending his tenure in Albany after a report from State Attorney General Letitia James accused him of sexually harassing multiple women, allegations he has denied several times. Multiple Republicans have also announced they're entering the governor's race including Long Island Congressman Lee Zeldin and Andrew Giuliani, the son of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
