Hochul announces on The Today Show she will run for governor in 2022

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul has announced she will be running for governor in 2022.

Hochul announced her plans Thursday morning during an interview on The Today Show.

She will take over as governor of New York in just twelve days.

Hochul will be the first female governor and the first governor since 1882 that is from upstate New York, specifically for her, Buffalo.

Some officials seem hopeful, expressing that her upstate roots will help the region, and that she’s shown she cares for the people in her actions in the past.

Others don’t feel as hopeful.

Former Republican state senator Joe Robach stated that he thinks Hochul was a part of the poor policies created by Cuomo’s team, and hopes things will change.
