ALBANY — The candidates for New York attorney general continue to add endorsements and cash as they head toward their first debate Friday.
State Sen. Eric Schneiderman was recently endorsed by two fellow Democrats, former Attorney General Robert Abrams and Sen. Charles Schumer. He reports raising more than $312,000 in the past week, with $1 million on hand for campaigning.
Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan recently added an endorsement from Republican Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy to previous backing from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Donovan reports raising more than $414,000 since his last required report in mid-July.
Donovan, who’s also running on the Conservative Party line, shows $444,000 on hand, including $10,000 from former Republican Sen. Alfonse D’Amato.
