A daughter of Kerry is to take on one of the most powerful political jobs in the world, as she assumes the role of Governor of New York following Andrew Cuomo's resignation on Tuesday evening in the midst of a harrassment scandal.

Lieutenant Governor Kathy Courtney Hochul, now comes to the role as a hugely popular Democrat of centrist sensibilities with west Kerry blood in her veins. She is the granddaughter of Maharees couple Jack and Mary Courtney (née Browne), who left the tombolo separately on their paths to the US nearly a century ago.
