New York Attorney General Letitia James entered the race for governor on Friday, kicking off a Democratic primary clash that will immediately pit the progressive favorite against moderate Gov. Kathy Hochul, who took office this summer following the resignation of former Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

In a video announcement, James highlighted her New York roots as well as her work as attorney general and former New York City public advocate.

"I've spent my career guided by a simple principle: stand up to the powerful on behalf of the vulnerable, to be a force for change," James said. "We can do this if we stand up and speak out together."

The next gubernatorial election in New York will be held in November 2022.

James, 63, has been weighing a run at New York's top job for months and could become the first Black woman in American history to be elected governor of any state.
