Assembly colleagues in his burgeoning run for Attorney General.
Francine DelMonte, Barbara Lifton, Donna Lupardo, William Magee, William Parment and Addie Russell sent out an endorsement letter\Friday calling Brodsky "a man of character and judgment" who "stands up for powerful interest groups on behalf of regular people."

They are both fighting to replace current Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, who is expected to run for Governor, although he has yet to make an official announcement.
