Liz Krueger on the Maloney Seat: It Beats Working in Albany

ALBANY—With an official announcement imminent from Representative Carolyn Maloney about her intention to run a primary against Kirsten Gillibrand, I asked State Senator Liz Krueger if she would seek Maloney’s House seat.
“I’ve never been in Congress so I don’t know if it’s less frustrating,{” she told me yesterday. “But I suspect pretty much any job in the United States of America would be less frustrating than Albany in the last three weeks.” “It’s a long time, I think, before we will have any closure on her finalizing the decision not to run for her seat. A number of people have suggested I consider running, as they have suggested quite a few of my other colleagues in the Congressional district who are already in elected office.
