NY Attorney General Race

Endorsements are flying around everywhere these days when it comes to the AG race. And while there are currently 10 potential candidates for the job listed in this TU article, only two people are picking up many of them. Andrew Cuomo and Richard Brodsky. Brodsky recently got the support of several of his co-workers. Assemblywoman Amy Paulin:

"If you liked Eliot, you'll love Richard."

I'm certainly leaning towards Brodsky at this point. He was the leader in investigating the Great Pataki Canal Giveaway Scandal. He earned some points for that one. At this point I'm not aware of anything Cuomo has done that would make him a qualified candidate beyond who his Dad was...so I'm thinking he should become a lobbyist instead of the AG.
