With Cuomo becoming New York next Governor…who will run for his Attorney General job?

The New York Post has something on a poll sent out by Liz Holzman…..a former Congresswoman and Brooklyn DA…….rating a run for New York State Attorney General…..(the last few have become Governor )

Holzman might be actually over the hill….and has had a very…very turbulent political past in New York.….but the interesting thing is that Nassau County DA  Kathleen Rice is in second place in the poll after only her second term in office……

The Knickerbocker reported at the end of March that a north Brooklyn reader got a polling call focused exclusively on former congresswoman and Brooklyn DA Elizabeth Holtzman — and now Mike Bloomberg pollster Doug Schoen is claiming ownership of it. Schoen conducted the poll, apparently at Holtzman’s request, between March 27 and April 1, with a sample size of 500, and claims his research shows that in the seven-way race of current Democratic contenders considering or declared in the race, Holtzman has a 20 point lead. Holtzman had 29 percent, and Nassau County District AttorneyKathleen Rice had 9 percent, while state Sen. Eric Schneiderman and Denise O’Donnell were tied at 4 percent each. “It is my considered opinion that if Liz Holtzman runs, she will be a very strong candidate and would begin as the odds-on frontrunner for Attorney General in New York,” Schoen said in a statement accompanying the poll, which was distributed wide to reporters. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Holtzman paid for the poll out of her own pocket.

  1. We can safely take Spitzer OUT of a potential bid for seeking a 3rd non-consecutive term as NY State Attorney General or even State Comptroller of Public Accounts.

  2. Seez who CD?……You?

    The New York State Controller is Tom DiNapoli….a nice guy whom I had the pleasure of meeting face to face…..Unfortunately…..Both Cuomo and Spitzer really don’t like him…..

    Spitzer could always decide to run for the job…..

    The AG job is probably out of the question……..

  3. Spitzer would be a good fit for the Comptroller’s gig, which gives him a low profile, but as for future political aspirations, he can forget about being governor again in 2014 or 2018 for that matter.

    Silda Spitzer won’t allow it.

    How many terms do you see Cuomo serving as governor ?
    A. 3-like his father did.
    B. 4
    C. Until he dies in office.

  5. James B, 2 terms ?

    I don’t see it happening brother.

    Cuomo would like to break his father’s record of 12 years and don’t forget that George Pataki also spent 12 years in Albany.

  6. I don’t see more than 2 honestly…..

    The Senate wouldn’t be bad…remember he was HUD Secretary…

    Heck he might try to be the first Italian-AmericItlian-American President..he’s have to remarry of course….
