Andrew Cuomo Announcing Kathy Hochul as His Running Mate
One former legislator from Western New York is being replaced by another in this November's election.
Duffy had served as chief of police and mayor of Rochester, New York. Hochul, a former county clerk, has been working at M&T Bank since she left Congress in 2013.
Duffy cited personal reasons for his decision not to run, stating that the constant travel required by the position has taken its toll on his back.
