Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul is looking to hold her seat against a challenge from Republican Lee Zeldin.

Hochul holds a lead against Zeldin, but the race has gotten tighter closer to Election Day, according to FiveThirtyEight.

Zeldin has criticized Hochul for crime in the state, saying at a debate that New Yorkers are "poorer and less safe because of Kathy Hochul and extreme policies."

Hochul has condemned Zeldin for his stance on abortion. Zeldin praised the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade but has adopted a more moderate stance on the issue, saying he wouldn't change New York's abortion laws.

The House races in the state have also gained attention. According to FiveThirtyEight, seven out of the 50 most completive House races are for seats in New York.

New York is a usually a reliably blue state, having routinely elected Democratic governors since 2002.

Counties are colored red or blue when the percent of expected vote reporting reaches a set threshold. This threshold varies by state and is based on patterns of past vote reporting and expectations about how the vote will report this year.
