NEW YORK (AP) - President Donald Trump might want to keep an eye on Thursday's Democratic primary for attorney general in New York. There's a chance he'll be sparring with the winner in a few months.

All four candidates have vowed to be a legal thorn in the Republican president's side.

Candidates include Fordham law professor Zephyr Teachout, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, U.S. Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney and former Hillary Clinton adviser Leecia Eve.

The winner will inherit several pending lawsuits filed by the state that challenge Trump's policies and accuse his charitable foundation of breaking the law.

The current attorney general, Barbara Underwood, is not running.

She was appointed to replace Eric Schneiderman, who resigned in May after he was accused of physically abusing several women.
