With the release of Letitia James from among the applicants, the main candidate from the Democrats for this post remains Kathy Hochul.

New York Attorney General Letitia James has decided not to run for governor. She announced this on Twitter on Thursday.

In October, James announced her intention to participate in the gubernatorial race; her candidacy was supported by a number of state legislators. “I have to continue my work as the Prosecutor General. There are a number of important investigations and cases, and I intend to complete this work. I will run for re-election to complete the job that New Yorkers elected me to,” the message reads.

James oversees the harassment case of Andrew Cuomo when he was governor of New York, as well as the investigation of possible fraud by the Trump Organization Company owned by former U.S. President Donald Trump. With the release of Letitia James from the list of candidates, the main Democratic candidate for governor remains Kathy Hochul, who holds this position after Cuomo’s departure. She will face the Republican nominee, where among the candidates is the son of Rudolph Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and Trump’s lawyer. The election of the governor is scheduled for November 8, 2022.
