With the competitive Public Advocate race in its final stretch ahead of a February 26 special election, "Mornings on 1" has reached out to all of the candidates who qualified for debates to be interviewed on our program.

More than a dozen candidates are looking to take the position that was left open after Letitia James was elected State Attorney General.

One of those looking to take the seat is Bronx State Assemblyman Michael Blake.

He is running on the “For the People” line.
