Spotted: Rice and Katz

Wednesday, January 19, 2011 - 05:25 PM

A reader says they spotted Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice meeting with former City Councilwoman Melinda Katz, at Pershing Square, about an hour ago.

Wonder what they were talking about?

Rice was considered the front-runner in the Democratic primary for attorney general last year, but was overtaken by Eric Schnedierman and his support from New York City-based elected officials and unions.

Katz too lost a close race, in 2009, when she ran for the Democratic nomination to become the city's next comptroller. That race was won by John Liu, who put together a multi-ethnic coalition and field operation not entirely dependent on the venerable Working Families Party organization.
