Convention wrap-up

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

 




This week on New York NOW we have wall-to-wall coverage of the state political conventions.

The Democrats overwhelmingly selected Governor Andrew Cuomo, Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Attorney General candidate Tish James, and Comptroller Tom DiNapoli to represent them this fall. Cuomo, despite the fact that he is a heavy favorite to beat Democratic challenger Cynthia Nixon in the September primary, still brought in the biggest names in his party for support.  Hillary Clinton endorsed him on Wednesday  and Joe Biden nominated him 24 hours later. 

On the Republican side, Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro is at the top of the ticket.  He's joined on the ballot by Keith Wofford, the first GOP African American nominee for Attorney General and Jonathan Trichter for comptroller.

Ken Lovett of the Daily News and Karen DeWitt of New York State Public Radio join us for analysis.

Tune in this weekend on your local PBS station.
