Governor Andrew Cuomo is trying for a third term in office on Tuesday, but is facing a challenge from Republican Marc Molinaro.
Cuomo has largely ignored Molinaro during the campaign, agreeing to only one debate and focusing most of his attacks on President Trump. When he has talked about Molinaro, he’s attempted to tie him to the president’s record.
“No how, no way are you bringing Trump’s policies to the state of New York,” Cuomo said during a rally on Monday.
A Siena College poll out earlier this week showed Cuomo with a 22 point lead in the race, down from the 22 point advantage he had in October. Molinaro claims his internal polls show it’s a much closer race.
U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is also up for re-election in New York. She’s expected to defeat Republican Chele Farley. State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli is receiving a challenge from Republican Jonathan Trichter. New York City Public Advocate Letitia James and Republican Keith Wofford are vying for the job of State Attorney General.
All seats in the State Senate and Assembly are also up for grabs.
Polls in New York are open until 9 p.m.
