BROOKLYN - The race for attorney general, which will reach its final stage during Election Day next week, has pitted two candidates who share an affinity for New York City and not much else.

Democratic State Sen. Eric Schneiderman represents upper Manhattan and part of the Bronx. He is the former chairman of the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee, and also served as the deputy minority leader of the state Senate from 2003 to 2006.

The GOP candidate, Dan Donovan, has been the Staten Island district attorney since 2003. Donovan also served under legendary Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morganthau and was chief of staff to former Staten Island Borough President Guy Molinari.

Donovan has cast himself as an Albany outsider who will take on Wall Street corruption, while Schneiderman says he wants to restore trust in state government.
