Rice's Attendance

Kathleen Rice did not attend this morning's forum for attorney general candidates, hosted by City Hall News, in Manhattan.

Rice's spokesman, Eric Phillips, emailed this statement: "She was at work at her DA's office. She debated twice in last five days and is looking forward to the Citizens Union debate tomorrow. She attends as many as she can in light of her responsibilities as district attorney."

Curtailing public appearances (and opportunities to be attacked directly) is one of the benefits of tending to your full-time job, while running for another one.

There’s another AG candidate’s event tonight. I’m waiting to hear back if Rice will be attending.

UPDATE: A spokesman for Rice says she will be not be attending tonight's forum. She's going to a campaign event in Brooklyn, instead.
