KENT CLIFFS – Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, who is considering a run for New York attorney general, told The Putnam County Democratic convention Monday night that “no news will be made tonight.” He told the delegates in Kent Cliffs that he is a “candidate for Congress; however, I may be a candidate for something else this year.”
The lawmaker said he has “poured my heart and soul into representing this district in Washington and will be making a decision on whether or not to run for New York State Attorney General.”
Maloney did concede loving the law. “This is an exciting opportunity
for me.” Noting the political climate in Washington, he said he
has “an opportunity to become a part of that conversation and if
it makes sense, I will give it consideration.”
Last week his campaign committee announced formation of an exploratory committee to weigh the options about a possible run for attorney general and a spokesman indicated a decision would be announced in the next couple of weeks.
The attorney general post opened recently when Eric Schneiderman abruptly resigned amid allegations that he had assaulted a former girlfriend during sexual encounters.
