One of the more hotly contested races to keep an eye on this year is once again the battle for State Attorney General.
Not lost on any candidate running for AG:
– The job of New York Attorney General has been national in stature.
– Election to NY Attorney General has been a very successful stepping stone into the Governor’s mansion. Notably Elliot Spitzer and Andrew Cuomo. (should the polls end up being accurate)
And adding to the unpredictability of this race is Cuomo's request for a balanced ticket. Regional balance, (Upstate Downstate) ethnic balance, and gender balance.
