  New York's senior senator has never been one to shy from the spotlight or a podium, so Chuck Schumer had both Wednesday in front of the New York delegation at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.  Perhaps most notably, he expressed opposition to the Trans Pacific Partnership, and that there would be major changes in trade deals if he becomes Senate Majority Leader.

New York's top law enforcement official also addressed the delegates.  Eric Schneiderman told the group about his lawsuit against Trump University.  He said Donald Trump "leaves trail of broken deals, unpaid contractors, unpaid lawyers, unfulfilled obligations and ruined lives behind him wherever he goes."

Listen to NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's address to the delegation in Philadelphia.
