A campaign account for Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor candidate Kathy Hochul was filed with the state Board of Elections on Thursday.

Hochul, who joined the ticket in May at the state Democratic convention in Suffolk County, had yet to form a campaign account, but has been traveling the state to meet with local elected officials.

Though she’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s preferred running mate, Hochul and the governor run separately.

NYPIRG’s Bill Mahoney says the primary challenge to Hochul from Zephyr Teachout’s preferred running mate, Columbia professor Tim Wu, requires her to set up a separate campaign account.

Records show Wu contributed $30,000 to his campaign account.

A filing from Republican LG candidate Chris Moss is yet to post on the Board of Elections website.
