The Democratic front-runner in the primary race for attorney general, Tish James, said if she’s elected, she’d be independent of her political ally, Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
James, who is in her second term as New York City’s public advocate, was nominated by the state Democratic Party to be its candidate. She’s appeared frequently in public with the top of the ticket, Andrew Cuomo, who’s seeking a third term as governor.
“Today we join with our great governor, who has led the way,” James said at a gun control rally with Cuomo on June 11.
