Sources say George Latimer on short list as Letitia James' running mate in governor's race
Speculation is growing about the political future of the man who holds Westchester's top job following his reelection victory Tuesday night.
Multiple sources have told News 12 senior reporter Tara Rosenblum that Westchester County Executive George Latimer is being considered as a potential running mate by Attorney General Letitia James, who announced her candidacy for governor last week.
James even showed up as a surprise guest to Latimer's campaign headquarters Tuesday night in White Plains.
In an exclusive interview with News 12, Rosenblum asked the attorney general if she is eyeing Latimer for the role of lieutenant governor.
News 12 also asked Latimer if he'd consider joining James on the ticket Tuesday night. He said that he is currently focused on his job as county executive for a second term.
