Ex-Silver Pointer Running For N.Y. Comptroller

Feb 17 2010 | 10:24am ET

Former Silver Point Capital partner Harry Wilson has made it official: He’s running for New York State comptroller.

Wilson, who has also done stints at private equity firms Clayton Dubilier & Rice and the Blackstone Group, has unofficially be in the race for some time. But yesterday he sent a letter to the county chairmen of both the New York Republican and Conservative parties, seeking their support.

“This is a very winnable race, and with your backing, we are going to win it,” he wrote.

Wilson has already won the backing of three Republican county chairs, including those in his native Fulton County and in Westchester County, where he now resides. In something of a coup, he’s also won the endorsement of the Rockland County GOP chair. Rockland, across the Hudson River from Westchester, is home to a potential rival for the Republican nod, County Executive Scott Vanderhoef.

If he wins the nomination, Wilson will face off against Democratic incumbent Thomas DiNapoli.
