Three is enough: Manhattan DA Vance says ‘No mas’ on fourth term


Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. made the worst kept secret in New York City politics official on Friday morning: He will not seek a fourth term in office.

The three-term incumbent Democrat, known for prosecuting movie mogul Harvey Weinstein for sex crimes and for leading a financial investigation into former President Donald Trump, had not conducted an active re-election campaign over the past year, and was absent from debates.

Three months away from the June 22 Democratic primary, Vance decided to make it official. In a statement, he looked back on the last 12 years of accomplishments and said that he worked to make the Manhattan DA’s office more effective and more cooperative with the communities it serves.
