Alessandra Biaggi gave up her state Senate seat. She has no regrets.

State Sen. Alessandra Biaggi has never been fearful of a political challenge. In 2018, then-candidate Biaggi defeated Jeff Klein, the head of the Independent Democratic Conference, in a political upset that helped to reshape the Democratic Party in the upper chamber. During her time in the state Senate, Biaggi helped to bring awareness to sexual harassment and revamp the state Senate Committee on Ethics. Last year, after Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney forced freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones to leave his district, Biaggi announced she would primary him. Although the state senator ultimately lost the primary and her seat in the upper chamber, Biaggi has no regrets. In an interview with City & State, Biaggi reflected on her tenure in the state Senate and looked ahead to her political future. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.
