May 25, 2018 - Max & Murphy Podcast: State Party Conventions and Nominations

It's state party convention and nomination season as we head toward the fall elections, with state-level primaries in September and the general election in November. Political parties are holding their nominating conventions and deciding which candidates to formally back. The parties that have dedicated ballot lines -- Democratic, Republican, Independence, Conservative, Green, Working Families, Women's Equality, Reform -- have mostly decided their picks for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Comptroller, and Attorney General.

On this podcast, Max & Murphy get you up to speed on where things stand with the nominations; analyze the race for governor and its two major party-backed candidates -- Democratic incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo and Republican Marc Molinaro -- as well as others in the mix, including Cynthia Nixon; and discuss a variety of things to watch for in the coming weeks.

Listen to the full conversation and let us know what you think -- we're on Twitter @TweetBenMax and @JarrettMurphy. You can listen to the episode through the embedded audio below or download the episode wherever you get your podcasts.
