One-on-one with Tish James

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

 

This week we sit down with the early favorite in the four-way Democratic Primary for New York State Attorney General.

Tish James is the current New York City Public Advocate and the overwhelming pick at the party's May convention on Long Island.  The latest Siena College poll has her leading the field at 25 percent followed by Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney at 16, Zephyr Teachout at 13 (our guest last week) and Leecia Eve at four percent.  However, almost half of the voters polled were still undecided.

James has appeared at a number of events with Andrew Cuomo since the convention leading some to question whether she can be independent of the governor if elected.  Karen DeWitt asks her about this, her legal background, and if the state needs to re-open the Moreland Commission to investigate public corruption. 

Join us this weekend on your local PBS station.
