New York Governor Kathy Hochul faced off against two challengers Thursday in the second and final televised debate before the June 28 Democratic primary, defending her record on guns and touting her accomplishments during her nearly 10 months in office so far. 

Hochul, who is seeking a full four-year term, held her ground against New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams and US Representative Tom Suozzi of Long Island.
