Cuomo Selects Former U.S. Rep. Hochul As Running Mate

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – Gov.Andrew Cuomo has namedformer U.S. Rep. Kathleen C. Hochul as his running mate on the Democratic ticket.

Hochul’s knowledge of federal affairs, background in business, local government experience and expertise on the complexities of restoring western New York’s economy were key in Cuomo’s decision to choose her as his running mate, he said.
