Dinkins for Schneiderman
July 19th, 2010

Sen. Eric Schneiderman was in Buffalo today picking up endorsements in his run for Attorney General but the biggest nod of the day came from former New York City Mayor David Dinkins.

I am pleased to endorse Eric Schneiderman, a man of principle and integrity, and a progressive leader for many years. Eric will be an excellent Attorney General who will work hard to ensure equal justice for all New Yorkers,said Dinkins.

Im proud to have the support of such a distinguished public servant and lifelong advocate for New York,” Schneiderman said in a statement. “As an elected official, civil rights leader, and humanitarian, Mayor Dinkins has spent his career breaking one glass ceiling after another. As Attorney General, I will continue the Mayors quest for progressive justice for all New Yorkers.”

The race for Attorney General is heating up as all five Democratic candidates will spend the next two days debating. Tomorrow, City Hall will host a debate at 8 A.M. at the CUNY Graduate Center at 365 Fifth Avenue. The Citizens Union will host a debate on Wednesday at 6 P.M. at the same location.
