The Race for Attorney General

14 May

Courtesy of Robert Harding, here is the state of the Attorney General’s race on the Democratic side. Although NY Superintendent of Insurance Eric Dinallo has the largest volume of county endorsements, they don’t amount to much. Meanwhile, Nassau DA Kathleen Rice and State Senator Eric Schneiderman are close to the 25% threshold to reach the ballot thanks to large weighted votes from Brooklyn and Manhattan. Also see this piece from Room Eight, which acts as a sort of spring training preview of the field.

Neither Niagara nor Erie County have endorsed any candidate. The GLOW counties have backed Dinallo. Notably absent from the race is current AG Andrew Cuomo, who (a) is running a campaign for calendar year 2010; (b) but isn’t campaigning for any office yet.

On the Republican side, the only almost-announced candidate is Staten Island DA Daniel Donovan.
