New York Attorney General Letitia James said Thursday that she is suspending her campaign for the Democratic nomination for the 2022 Governor’s race.
In a tweet, James said “there were a number of important investigations underway” and that she will seek re-election as attorney general to see them through.
“I am running for re-election to complete the work New Yorkers elected me to do,” she said.
The attorney general only announced she was running for governor in late October.
The 62-year-old is the first woman elected as New York’s attorney general and the first Black person to serve in the role.
