DA in Garner Case Looking to Replace Rep. Grimm

The New York district attorney most famous for his role in not indicting the police officer over the killing of Eric Garner said he wants to run for the open Congressional seat vacated by Republican Rep. Michael Grimm, NBC News reported Tuesday. Staten Island District Attorney Daniel Donovan has quickly and aggressively expressed interest in the race for the seat, according to a spokesperson for the New York Republican State Committee, who said Donovan's role in the Garner case will not create problems for Republicans. But Nicole Malliotakis, a state assemblywoman and the only Republican woman representing New York City, has told NBC News she's also "taking a serious look at the race."
