This developing situation is worth watching. Orange County Legislator and retired state police commander James O’Donnell is unopposed for the 18th District Republican congressional ballot line, and also has won the Conservative Party and Reform Party endorsements. Should Maloney win statewide, Mr. O’Donnell’s candidacy will immediately become more valuable.
In the Attorney General’s Democratic primary, Rep. Maloney is facing New York City Public Advocate Tish James, former gubernatorial aide and Lt. Governor candidate Leecia Eve, and frequent candidate Zephyr Teachout, a law school professor.
