New York Political Party Dance

Now that New York's Republican state convention has ended, the recognized parties (under New York State Election law) for the race for governor: have either designated candidates as official endorsees, or allowed more than one candidate to appear on its primary ballot.

At this point there is definitely a primary in the Conservative Party (Lazio v. Lorigo) and Carl Paladino has vowed to petition his way onto the Republican ballot.   It also looks as if the Working Families Party needs to get exonerated by an ongoing federal criminal investigation into campaign finance issues (PS: That is not happening.).  The Independence Party has endorsed Cuomo.

Why is this critical?   Under New York Election Law, a political party is "recognized" and gets automatic ballot lines only if its gubernatorial candidate gets 50,000 votes in the prior gubernatorial election.

This is why the future of at least one of the minor parties is in doubt.

There are also several groups -- both connected to candidates and those that are looking for one -- considering an independent petition drive in order to create another party.

Eric Dixon is a New York election lawyer who also does political consulting and strategic analysis.   He is not affiliated with any candidate or party and thus has no undisclosed conflict of interest.   He can be reached at 917-696-2442.
