A poll conducted by the Democratic gubernatorial campaign of Rep. Tom Suozzi shows him building momentum in the final weeks of the primary and has the potential to surpass Gov. Kathy Hochul with voters by June when voting begins.

The poll conducted by HarrisX and released to Spectrum News 1 by the Suozzi campaign comes as the Long Island congressman has criticized Hochul’s administration on issues like crime and public safety over the last several months, while simultaneously arguing he is more apt to prevent a Republican victory in November.

It also coincides with a rough stretch of news for the governor, including the resignation of her lieutenant governor, Brian Benjamin, following an indictment on fraud and bribery charges.
