Among those interviewed Tuesday were Assemblymembers Tom Abinanti and Danny O'Donnell, and former Congresswoman and New York City Comptroller Elizabeth Holtzman. Michael Gianaris, D-Queens, Fordham Law School professor Zephyr Teachout, New York CIty Advocate Letitia James and Rep Sean Patrick Maloney, D-Putnam County - all well-known in New York political circles.
