Yesterday, New York Attorney General Letitia James announced her bid for the 2022 governor race, right against current Governor Kathy Hochul. New York City public advocate, Jumaane Williams, is also planning to run in a Democratic primary. Other possible opponents include outgoing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Long Island Representative Tom Suozzi, and some have even speculated that Andrew Cuomo will run again, despite the ongoing investigation.
In announcing her run, Letitia James stated: “New Yorkers need a governor who isn’t afraid to stand up to powerful interests on behalf of the vulnerable. Throughout my career, I’ve taken on big forces and New Yorkers know I will never back down when it comes to fighting for them. Today, I am proud to announce my candidacy for governor of New York so we can bring transformational change that uplifts all New Yorkers.”
