Watch as Gov. Hochul is sworn in for her first full term as New York's governor


Kathy Hochul will make history Sunday when she is sworn in as New York’s first elected female governor, and her first full term in office will have its rewards and its challenges.

Last month, Hochul became the first female governor to be elected in the state’s history.

“The glass ceiling, like the one that’s above us here today, has finally been shattered in the state of New York,” Hochul said on Nov. 8 to a cheering crowd in a restored bank building in lower Manhattan. “And you made it happen.”

Hochul will begin her term with a swearing-in ceremony and speech on New Year’s Day. It’s expected to include more imagery to highlight the lengthy fight for women’s rights that brought her to this day, like the historic Seneca Falls women’s rights convention in 1848.

Watch live as Hochul, Lt. Gov. Antonio Delgado, Attorney General Letitia James, and Comptroller Tom DiNapoli are sworn in for their next term.

Coverage begins at 2 p.m. Sunday in the live video below.
