Bing Would Consider Maloney’s Seat, ‘Later’

As Carolyn Maloney’s possible run for Senate draws closer, so does the possibility of a scramble for her House seat.

This morning, I emailed Assemblyman Jonathan Bing, and asked him about the idea of running for it.

“I am focused on working with Congresswoman Maloney in support of her efforts and will consider a campaign for her seat at a later time. I am extremely gratified by the supporters of hers and mine who have encouraged me to consider running for Congress,” he replied.

If Bing runs, he’ll be vacating his Assembly seat. Same goes for the Senate seat of Liz Krueger, if she runs for Congress.

Who’d run for those seats?
