Brodsky Isn’t Afraid to be an Incumbent

If there’s one word most candidates want to avoid in this current political climate, it‘s probably “incumbent.”

Richard Brodsky, who served in the Assembly for 28 years and is running for attorney general, said he’s been hearing that some of his opponents may bring up his long tenure in Albany.

And Brodsky isn’t really interested in making an argument either way.

In a brief interview this afternoon, Brodsky said the criticism “struck me as an attack on Andrew Cuomo as much as an attack on me. I don’t think the Democratic primary voter is going to adopt a Tea Party reaction to people who served in government.”

Cuomo, who has long been a fixture in Albany, is the leading gubernatorial candidate and wildly popular with Democratic voters.
