  •  AG Schneiderman (0+ / 0-)

    Cuomo was also believed to be behind DA Rice's bid for AG.  Rice was seen as the more centrist/conservative Dem candidate in that primary.  I think it is reasonable to assume from her positions that she may not have taken up the same causes that AG Schneiderman is now doing.  This is from a Liz Benjamin article;

    Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice is poised to grab key endorsements in her bid for attorney general - nudged to the front by her gender, her suburban base and a wink from Andrew Cuomo.

    Cuomo did come around and support Schneiderman after the primary and there is some reason to believe he wanted a more diverse ticket for the Dems and backed the only female, Rice.
    •  Schneiderman has been awesome so far. (0+ / 0-)

      First AG, nationwide, to start addressing foreclosure fraud seriously.  Among other thing.

      Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.
