Teachout makes her case for AG

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

The Democratic primary for attorney general is a crowded one.  New York City Public Advocate Tish James was overwhelmingly chosen as the party's nominee in May but three others are vying for the job, including Zephyr Teachout. 

If her name sounds familiar it's because she challenged Andrew Cuomo in 2014 in the Democratic primary for governor.  With little campaign money, she surprisingly garnered 34% of the vote.  Two years later she faced John Faso in the 19th Congressional District race, losing by nine percentage points.  Now, she's up against James, Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney and Leecia Eve. 

In this bonus clip, she discusses the importance of debates in this race and campaigning while pregnant.

Watch the full interview this weekend on your local PBS station.
