Ferrer Stands with Green, Fleetingly

Andrew Cuomo, Rep. Charlie Rangel and a few other Democrats may want Mark Green to drop out of the attorney general’s race — but not Freddy Ferrer.

When Ferrer and Green stood together this afternoon in Queens to endorse Hiram Monserrate for state senate, Ferrer was asked about the attorney general’s race.

“I haven’t made any endorsements in that race,” is all Ferrer would say.

Will Ferrer endorse in the AG race?

“Eventually.”

Before the primary?

To that, Freddy smiled, and finally said, “How else would I get you to another press conference? What else do I have going for me?”
