From the King campaign:

Today, Jeanine Pirro held a press conference outside of Andrew Cuomo’s campaign office. In her statement she criticized Cuomo for being a non-practicing attorney. King campaign spokeswoman Caitlin Klevorick issued the following statement in response:

New Yorkers need an Attorney General candidate who focuses on helping them and does not play games. Charlie King is that candidate.”
