Race to Be the Next Attorney General: Meet the Candidates

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

WNYC

This week’s New York State Democratic State Party Convention delegates will weigh in on which one of five fellow Democrats they want to see replace Attorney General Andrew Cuomo as the state’s top law enforcement officer. The opinion of presumptive Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Cuomo will loom large. If one of the AG contenders gets 51 percent, they win the party’s designation. And anyone who garners at least 25 percent is qualified to get their name on the September primary ballot. Short of those two options, Democratic contenders would have to get 15,000 signatures from around the state to get on the ballot for the primary.
