AG candidate rumors

Some rumormongering from Rising Times:

Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore … is being seriously considered by State Democrats to run for Attorney General next year. Current AG Andrew Cuomo is running for Governor, and rising times hears that communications have been made between both Cuomo and DiFiore to consider DiFiore running on a statewide ticket with Cuomo. If Cuomo and DiFiore join forces, it gives DiFiore the edge over the several Democrats that will likely come forward to also run for AG, including state senator Jeff Klein …”

I haven’t heard DiFiore’s name come up before.  This is interesting as she was originally elected as a Republican and changed parties to run for re-election as a Democrat.

In addition to DiFiore and Klein, other possible AG candidates include Richard Brodsky and Eric Schneiderman.  None of these guys are pro-gun with Schneiderman being the biggest stinker.  A primary would be a good as everyone except DiFiore would have to give up their legislative seats to make a run for AG.

  1. They would not be able to run for re-election. You can only run for one office at a time and both the legislature and AG seats are up in ’10. The Westchester DA office isn’t up again until ’13.
