New York, California Voters Differ On Climate Measures

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - OCTOBER 24: New York Republican gubernatorial nominee Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) looks out into a crowd during a press conference at the entrance to the Rikers Island jail on October 24, 2022 in New York City. Zeldin, who is narrowly trailing incumbent Gov. Kathy Hochul in the polls, held a press conference where he received the endorsement of the Correction Officers' Benevolent Association (COBA) surrounded by COBA Executive Board members and members of the union. Zeldin released a statement over the weekend agreeing to the single scheduled debate with Gov. Hochul this week, with the midterm election just two weeks away. (Photo by Michael M.
