Attorney General Letitia James (N.Y.), who was in charge of the probe which led to the resignation of Andrew Cuomo, officially announced her bid for governor.

James announced her gubernatorial campaign on Twitter on Friday. Her bid sets up a primary challenge to current Gov. Kathy Hochul (D-N.Y.), who became the first female governor in the state after taking over Cuomo’s role.

The Democrat said she has the experience, vision and courage to take on the power on behalf of all New Yorkers.

I'm running for Governor of New York because I have the experience, vision, and courage to take on the powerful on behalf of all New Yorkers.
