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.
