Power & Politics: Latimer announces bid for Congress; celebrating Hanukkah amid Israel-Hamas war
This week, Westchester's two-term County Executive George Latimer officially announced a run at Congress, setting the stage for what's expected to shape up as the highest profile primary showdown in the nation. He spoke with News 12’s Tara Rosenblum about his challenge to Rep. Jamaal Bowman, who News 12 is attempting to interview next.
Also, Jews across the Hudson Valley and the world are in the middle of celebrating Hanukkah. But are they approaching this year any differently with the rise in antisemitism since the war between Israel and Hamas began? Rabbi Evan Hoffman, president of the Westchester Board of Rabbis, joins Jonathan Gordon.
Finally, Carmel Police Chief Anthony Hoffmann joins the show to discuss safety initiatives around the holidays.
