Former Bronx prosecutor Gail Goode plans to turn in her signatures at 1 p.m. today to get on the ballot in September as a challenger to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.

Goode needs 15,000 signatures from enrolled Democrats, including 100 from half the Congressional districts in the state, to secure a spot on the ballot. According to a press release Goode sent last night, she plans to submit 45,000 signatures to the state Board of Elections.

“New Yorkers have a right to a Democratic primary,” Goode said.

According to the statement, Goode is the deputy borough chief in New York City’s tort unit. She is also a former assistant district attorney. More (and video) from DN here.

There are three Republicans eyeing Gillibrand’s job, Joe Diaguardi, Bruce Blakeman and David Malpass.
