Former Labor Secretary Robert Reich on Thursday endorsed Democratic candidate for attorney general Zephyr Teachout.

The endorsement from Reich, also a former assistant U.S. solicitor general, comes a week before the Sept. 13 four-way primary for the open seat.

“I’m supporting Zephyr Teachout for New York’s Attorney General because her expertise in fighting political corruption is appropriate to the tragic time we find ourselves in,” Reich said. “I’m confident she’ll recruit some of the best lawyers in the country, and restore integrity and pride to this office.”

Teachout faces Leecia Eve, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James and Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney in the primary.

“Robert Reich understands the all-encompassing, corrupting influence of money in politics and the modern day robber barons who are trying to degrade our democracy,” Teachout said. “As Attorney General I’ll be the regulator of last resort against the Trump administration’s attacks on consumer financial protections, because New Yorkers can’t afford another financial crisis.”
