NY governor’s race: Attorney General Letitia James suspends campaign after just 2 mos.

Buh Bye.

New York Attorney General Letitia James is suspending her campaign for governor after less than two months.

“I have come to the conclusion that I must continue my work as attorney general,” James said in a surprise announcement Thursday. “There are a number of important investigations and cases that are underway, and I intend to finish the job.”

James said she would run for reelection as attorney general.

James had overseen the investigation into sexual harassment allegations against former Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who claimed the investigation was politically motivated.

A Siena College poll released this week showed that Gov. Kathy Hochul is the front-runner in the race, with support from 36% of New York Democrats. James was second in the poll, at 18%.
