Court rules on Working Families ballot line in New York House race

The Hill reports: “A federal court ordered Alice Kryzan (D) not to appear as a third party candidate, potentially changing the game in New York’s hotly contested 26th district. A federal judge sided with New York Republicans and blocked Kryzan from appearing as the candidate of the Working Families Party (WFP), leaving primary opponent Jon Powers (D) on the ballot as the WFP nominee. After being upset by Kryzan in September’s Democratic primary, Powers moved out of the state, one of the few scenarios in which a candidate’s name can be changed on the ballot. Republicans lost challenges to the WFP’s new endorsement of Kryzan in state court, but succeeded Friday in federal court. Kryzan spokeswoman Anne Wadsworth said the campaign would appeal the case to the U.S. Court of Appeals in the 2nd Circuit, though it was not clear when the suit would be filed.”
