Last remaining candidate in race for Westchester DA says she is up for task
The last remaining candidate in the race for Westchester district attorney is using the days leading up to the election preparing to take office.
Democrat Mimi Rocah's path to victory is coming into focus. It comes after her Republican challenger, defense attorney Bruce Bendish, dropped out of the race even though his name will still appear on the ballot.
The top prosecutor's job comes with new challenges like running the courts during a pandemic and easing racial tensions between the community and police.
She says she is up for the task.
"We also need to be positive about the opportunities, about the moment that we have to reshape things, and about the possibilities of bringing people together," she says.
