Today, following New York Attorney General Letitia James announcing her candidacy in New York’s 2022 gubernatorial race, Sean Rankin, Executive Director of the Democratic Attorneys General Association, released the following statement:
“Attorney General Letitia James has been a national star in some of the most impactful and important fights that have faced New York and our country. Whether it’s taking on the NRA or Donald Trump, Attorney General James has been a protector of consumers, an advocate for the values we share, and a champion for those in need. We know she will be an outstanding governor, given her experience and passion fighting for working people. We are sorry to see her leave the Attorney General ranks, but we know New Yorkers would be fortunate to have Attorney General James leading New York as their next governor.”
About The Democratic Attorneys General Association
The Democratic Attorneys General Association (DAGA) is the only committee solely dedicated to electing and supporting Democratic state Attorneys General. Democratic AGs currently hold 25 seats and represent the majority of Americans and the states responsible for the majority of the U.S. GDP. This is the most diverse coalition of Democratic AGs in history.
Founded in 2002 by California AG Bill Lockyer, Iowa AG Tom Miller, and New Mexico AG Patsy Madrid, DAGA began as a part-time political committee based in Denver, Colorado. To better support our Democratic AGs and candidates in executing our mission, the committee moved its operations from Denver, CO to Washington, DC in 2016 and expanded to a full-time professional staff that covers campaigns, recruiting, data analysis, communications, policy, politics, and fundraising.
Today, DAGA is a record-breaking, professional committee that supports and elects Democratic AGs—and Democratic AGs are front and crnter when it comes to the current political and policy landscape.
