In 2002, the legislature redrew his district, a move widely seen as creating boundaries less hospitable to him. Schneiderman won that year with about two thirds of the vote and has been reelected twice since.

This time around, Schneiderman has two opponents, but some of the zeal seems to have gone from the bid to remove him. On the Republican line, he faces Martin Chicon, who has run repeatedly and unsuccessfully for office since at least 1992. This year he is a leader of a group called "Unidos por McCain" that seeks to build support for the Republican presidential candidate in traditionally Democratic neighborhoods in upper Manhattan.

In his most recent campaign filing, Schneiderman reported having $88,211 on hand. Bradian reported no contributions, and records for Chicon were not available.
