Last week, Unshackle Upstate announced its first endorsement in a statewide race, supporting Republican John Cahill in his race against incumbent Democratic state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Unshackle Upstate’s outgoing executive director Brian Sampson called Cahill a strong candidate with the vision and integrity to tackle the Albany-status quo and stand up for upstate communities, taxpayers and small businesses.

Unshackle Upstate Executive Director Brian Sampson said:

“John Cahill has the experience and character New Yorkers deserve from the State’s chief law enforcement officer. He understands that the Office of Attorney General should be independent, just and fair to all New Yorkers. For too long, the attorney general’s office has been a complicit contributor to New York’s reputation as the tax and regulation capital of the country. John Cahill will change that and we are proud to support him.”
