Your comments on Kathy Hochul:

Progressive. IF Cuomo selected her, she must be a liberal, because the governor, in his arrogance, has no interest in reaching out to moderates or Conservatives. -Fred C., Brooklyn Heights

Conservative. Kathy Hochul stands for very little that can be perceived as the position of a true Democrat let lane a Progressive. -Casey C.

Conservative. The Prince wanted her conservative NRA background for votes in Western NY while having a woman for his NYC base. -William M., Wynantskill

Progressive. Kathy is a clone of President Obama and his policies. She's not good for New York State or the Congress. -John H., Rochester

Neither, as she lost her political virginity months ago. Hochul has morphed into yet another career Albany insider politician with no moral principles or philosophy. She will say or do anything to assist Cuomo in winning a second term as Governor. -Larry P., Great Neck

Conservative. Based on her record. -Anonymous

Conservative. I am sort of a middle of the road person, but she is way too far to the right. Imagine the fun if the voters dump her for Wu in the primary. -Barb, Queens

Who is Kathy Hochul? Does she stand or sit for anything other than what the Cuomo administration tells her. She has no record of accomplishment at all. Vote for Teachout and Wu. -Frank, Delmar

Progressive. She will go left or right depending on who she is trying to get votes from. All she wants is to get in front. -Anonymous

Conservative. Clearly to the right of Cuomo himself. -Anonymous

Guns and anti-immigrant. -Anonymous

Progressive. She's been beating Republicans on their home turf for years. -Anonymous

Conservative. She campaigned in Western New York that she always had the Conservative Party's nomination. -Timothy W., Athens

Pragmatic. I hope she'll become an advisor to the Governor, not just his salesperson. -Don J., Rochester

Machiavellian. -Anonymous
