You Decide with Errol Louis

Aug 4, 2022

This week, longtime political titans Rep. Carolyn Maloney and Rep. Jerry Nadler, along with challenger Suraj Patel, squared off in a lively Democratic primary debate, hosted by Spectrum News NY1 and WNYC-Gothamist.

Listen to the full showdown, co-moderated by Errol Louis, in which the candidates looked to distinguish themselves ahead of the August 23 primary. The Democrats debated on issues like SCOTUS, climate change and the economy. While Patel focused on the need for new leadership on Capitol Hill, Nadler and Maloney leaned on their lengthy resumes, as they both fight for their political lives.

One of the highlights of the evening was a surprising answer to a lightning round question, which caught many off guard.
