Among the races to watch this election cycle, the Democratic primary race for lieutenant governor has turned out to be one of the hottest. That’s why City & State New York and PIX11 have invited Lt. Gov. Antonio Delgado to face off with his Democratic primary opponents Ana María Archila and Diana Reyna for a debate on June 1.
The event, just ahead of the June 28 primary, is being presented in partnership with the Coro New York Leadership Center and will be hosted at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY.
Archila and Reyna have already confirmed they plan to participate. A confirmation from Delgado, who was sworn into office on Wednesday to be Gov. Kathy Hochul’s second in command, remains pending from his campaign. Candidates will gather for a 5:30 p.m. start and have the opportunity to present opening and closing statements. They also will take questions from students and guests.
The event is not open to the public, but will be livestreamed on PIX11’s Facebook page and covered by City & State New York. Look for our story in the upcoming June 6 magazine and online. Who knew an LG race could generate this much buzz? Don’t miss it!
