Statement From Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo
"My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Spitzer family as they cope with this personal tragedy. Obviously, this is an extraordinarily difficult time for the family and for the entire state of New York. David Paterson, who has years of experience in state government, is a talented leader, a wonderful man, and a great friend. I look forward to working closely with Governor Paterson as he leads us forward. New York State faces many challenges and we have much work to do. Let us all work together, with a shared purpose, to make New York better for all its citizens."
