Also running will be Cyrus Vance, an attorney who has put together a campaign and said he’d only run if Morgenthau didn’t.
(Morgenthau's office did not return my call seeking comment.)
City Hall News drops names of other possible candidates, including State Senator Eric Schneiderman and a commissioner at the Department of Investigations, Rose Gill Hearn.
UPDATE: In a public statement, Vance said:
"As I have said for several months, I am running to succeed Bob Morgenthau as Manhattan District Attorney, not to run against him. When and if Mr. Morgenthau makes an announcement about his political plans, I will definitely have something to say. I respect and honor Bob Morgenthau's years of service."
