The Working Families Party on Monday announced it would begin a vetting of candidates for attorney general, with plans to make an endorsement at its state convention on Saturday in New York City.

“The WFP believes that New York needs an independent Attorney General who will be unafraid to stand up to the powerful and investigate Donald Trump and Wall Street crime, and will restore public integrity,” the party said.

A long list of candidates is vying for a legislative appointment to replace Democrat Eric Schneiderman, who resign last week amid domestic violence and abuse allegations. The WFP had earlier this month endorsed Schneiderman, but quickly rescinded that endorsement after the allegations surfaced in The New Yorker.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday in a NY1 interview said he would be meeting with potential AG hopefuls as well. State lawmakers will begin a public interview process for the candidates who have submitted resumes for a legislative appointment on Tuesday.
