Westchester District Attorney Pirro says she won?t seek re-election
Westchester District Attorney Jeanine Pirro officially announced Monday that she will not seek re-election.
Pirro says she instead plans to run for a higher statewide office. She says there are three possibilities for her political future - state attorney general, U.S. Senate against Hillary Rodham Clinton or governor, if Republican George Pataki decides not to seek another term. Pirro says the state attorney general post is an attractive office because law enforcement is in her blood.
County Republicans say State Supreme Court Justice Janet DiFiore has been discussed as a possible replacement for Pirro.
