Jeanine Pirro has moved up her timetable and will switch to the attorney general's race tomorrow or Friday, sources close to her campaign said last night.
Westchester County District Attorney Pirro is expected to hold a short press conference to make the announcement, and then say she'll officially kick off her new campaign early next year, the sources said.
State GOP leaders called on Pirro last week to abandon her effort to challenge Democratic incumbent Hillary Rodham Clinton in the wake of a string of campaign missteps and the inability to raise substantial amounts of cash.

Pirro's expected to withdraw from the Senate race later this week. Perfect timing. With everyone focused on the transit strike, it flies under the radar.
