Schneiderman’s Women

AG candidate Eric Schniderman, whose opponents include at least one female candidate, is having a fund-raiser Friday featuring his prominent female supporters.

They include: State Senator Liz Krueger, Council Members Gale Brewer and Julissa Ferras, as well as former public advocate Betsy Gotbaum, former Council member Ronnie Eldridge, and major Democratic donor Susan Patricof.

The only officially declared woman in the AG race is Kathleen Rice, who critisized Schneiderman for not quickly enough calling for State Senate colleague Pedro Espda to be ousted from his leadership role. Also considering entering the race is Liz Holtzman, a former city comptroller and congresswoman who commissioned a poll by Doug Schoen showing she enjoys a good deal of name recognition.
