Zephyr Teachout halts AG campaign, endorses Tish James


State Attorney General candidate Zephyr Teachout dropped her campaign to be the state’s next top prosecutor Sunday and threw her support behind incumbent Letitia James, three days after James pulled out of the race for governor.

“Our campaign for NY Attorney General has always been rooted in doing the best for New Yorkers. Attorney General Letitia James is an exceptional leader and dedicated public servant. Given her decision to seek re-election, I will be immediately suspending my own campaign,” Teachout wrote in a statement Dec. 12. “I strongly support Attorney General James in her re-election and her critical fights to deliver justice for the people of New York.”
