If elected, Keith Wofford - the Republican candidate for New York State Attorney General - promised he would launch an investigation into systemic state and local political corruption immediately after being sworn into office.

The Buffalo native campaigned in Binghamton Friday.

Wofford is challenging Democrat and NYC public advocate Letitia James, who won a four-way-primary last Thursday. 

Wofford pointed to the vast resources and authority of New York's attorney general to root out corruption. 

Both candidates have made cleaning up Albany a central theme in their campaigns. They are seeking the seat held once held by Eric Schneiderman, who abruptly resigned in May after four women told The New Yorker he had physically abused them.
