McCall reflects on historic career

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

The longtime SUNY Chairman is calling it a career at the end of the month and what a career it was.

H. Carl McCall was the first African-American elected to a statewide office when he ran for comptroller and the first to be nominated by a major party for governor.  This weekend on the program, he looks back on his time in Albany as a politician, his battle with Andrew Cuomo for the party's gubernatorial nod in 2002, and growing up on welfare in Boston in the 1940's.
