Mayor Bloomberg waded into the thicket of the attorney general's race today, praising Republican candidate Dan Donovan as somebody who would be "a spectacular attorney general," while back-handedly slapping his Democratic opponent, state Senator Eric Schneiderman.
I think [Donovan] would focus on what he needs to do going forward as attorney general, and that is enforce the law, prosecute people when they break the law, and leave being governor to the governor. You always get worried when you have a candidate for attorney general that wants to use that office to enact a social agenda. I don't think that's good.
Schneiderman has been running for attorney general as an unabashed progressive who has made social justice a cornerstone of his campaign. He has focused heavily on a woman's right to choose--Donovan is pro-life--even though there is some dispute about whether or not the abortion issue matters to the attorney general's office.

Protecting Wall St. and banks from predators like Cuomo and Spitzer. These two have just about bankrupted the city of New York with their endless lawsuits and fines for not ‘loaning’ money to the indigent.
I always liked Donovan, too.
I’m afraid the entire NY State is headed for bankruptcy if NYers don’t vote intelligently for a change.
We can thank Cuomo for his HUD activities for bringing this hell down on the world. His good buddies Dodd and Frank helped big time.
Calif. and New York will be BANKRUPT, Morally and Financially, if they don’t start voting more conservatively!!
Social agendas are for mayors, of course. Not AGs.
“Calif. and New York will be BANKRUPT, Morally and Financially, if they dont start voting more conservatively!!”
You said it! Fiscal and social conservatism seem to go hand in hand.
