John Cahill has won the New York Republican Party’s nomination for attorney general.

Cahill was a top adviser to former Republican Governor George Pataki, serving stints as chief of staff, general counsel and commissioner of the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

The state GOP nominated the 55-year-old Cahill on Wednesday during its convention in Westchester County. Cahill faces Democratic Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in the November election.

After accepting, Cahill said if he’s elected, he’ll work to defend the interests of taxpayers and build confidence in government.
