Nassau DA Rice has most funds for state AG race

Of the likely Democratic candidates to succeed Attorney General Andrew Cuomo if he runs for governor, Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice led in campaign funds on hand last month with $2.4 million. Eric Dinallo, former top aide to Cuomo predecessor Eliot Spitzer, had $1.5-plus million - as did Nassau-raised ex-U.S. prosecutor Sean Coffey, a Chaminade High School grad. Also reporting more than $1 million: State Sen. Eric Schneiderman of Manhattan and Assemb. Richard Brodsky of Westchester. Potential debate-starter: Dinallo, ex-insurance superintendent, said during the Wall Street bonus ruckus last fall "the real problem is not around compensation [but] the regulatory structure that has not been changed in Congress."
