King Out Of Attorney General Race, Backs Cuomo

Rockland County resident Charlie King decided over the weekend to drop his bid for attorney general.

Today he announced his support for the front runner in the Democratic field, Andrew Cuomo.

"I endorse Andrew Cuomo today because he is now the clear choice for our party in this race. Andrew understands that the next attorney general must focus on ensuring that all New Yorkers are guaranteed social, economic and racial justice," said King.

King was joined by Cuomo, Rep. Charles Rangel and other New York City Democrats when he announced his support for Cuomo.

That leaves Cuomo, Mark Green and Sean Patrick Maloney as the three Democrats still in the race with one week to go, as Maloney was quick to point out in an e-mail to supporters today.
Maloney said one of his biggest challenges is overcoming his newcomer status in New York politics.

In a recent mailer, Maloney tries to take advantage of his newcomer status by asking voters if they might not be tired of "leftovers" Andrew Cuomo and Mark Green , whom he called "been there" and "done that" respectively. It's worth a chuckle.
