Statement from NYS Democratic Chairman on Gubernatorial Race

For Immediate Release: December 9, 2021

NASSAU COUNTY, NY: New York State Democratic Party Chairman Jay S. Jacobs has released the following statement:

"I supported Tish James in her quest to become Attorney General in 2018 because I saw in her something unique for someone in political life – she genuinely put the Democratic Party over her own interests and had a deep and genuine concern for what was best for the people of our state. She  has demonstrated that, once again, with her decision today.  She united Democrats for the sake of the Party, which she again put over her own interests.  I admire Tish James and look forward to working with her in her re-election for Attorney General."
