NEW YORK — One week after joining the New York State race for attorney general, Assemblymember Clyde Vanel announced he plans to withdraw. 

The Haitian-American lawmaker will instead support incumbent Attorney General Letitia James, who decided to suspend her gubernatorial campaign on Dec. 9 to run for re-election in her current role next election cycle.

“I support the awesome work that Attorney General James has been doing and the investigations that she has been doing in her office,” Vanel said in his Dec. 13 announcement.

Vanel plans on running for re-election in his current position representing State Assembly District 33 in Queens, which include such Haitian enclaves as Queens Village and Cambria Heights. Vanel, who has represented the district since 2017, said he will continue to focus on such as issues economic justice, public safety and consumer protection. 


The elections are scheduled for November 2022.
