    Biography: State Sen. Daniel Squadron has been known as a bit of a prodigy. The Brooklyn resident served as a top aide to U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer while in his twenties and helped Schumer write his book. Squadron also worked on former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s failed 2005 mayoral bid. In 2008, Squadron successfully won a primary against 30-year Democratic incumbent Sen. Martin Connor to represent the 26th State Senate District. His bid for the seat was buoyed by the support of Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Schumer and Weiner during the race. Squadron’s wife, Elizabeth Weinstein, is Bloomberg’s director of the Mayor’s Office of Operations. As state senator, Squadron has pushed major pieces of ethics reform and gun control legislation. He also introduced legislation on behalf of Bloomberg, and backed him in his successful bid to renew mayoral control of schools. Squadron announced in 2012 that he would run for public advocate.
