The Republican candidate for state Attorney General, Keith Wofford, was endorsed by the Empire State Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors in his campaign to be New York’s next chief legal officer.

“We believe that Keith, unlike his opponent, has a high moral compass and the integrity to do what is right for the people of this state,” said Brian Sampson, President of ABC, Empire State. “Unlike his opponent, he will apply a fair and even hand to the laws and regulations and not let any campaign donors, or the Governor, dictate the positions his office will enforce. Keith Wofford is the only Attorney General candidate that will lead New York to a better future.”

Wofford faces New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, who won a four-way Democratic primary in September.

New York’s current Attorney General Barbara Underwood is not seeking a full term.
