Warren Redlich is seeking the Libertarian and Republican nominations for Governor of New York. He has also described himself as a “tea party candidate.”

A separate, unrelated group has also made plans to qualify a “Tea Party” as a political party in New York and run another, unrelated candidate.

Also recently, current New York Governor David Patterson has bowed out of the race.

    Here’s my theory:

    She and her backers realized they couldn’t overcome Warren Redlich to win the LP nomination.

    This is very good news for Warren.

  3. Third Party Revolution

    Third Party Revolution would like to endorse Kristin Davis in her campaign for Governor of New York, along with many other third party and independent candidates seeking public offices nationwide, ranging from local to federal levels.

  4. Jeremy Young

    I agree with Eric that it’s good news for Redlich. I also don’t think that Davis will take any votes from Redlich on the general election ballot — she’ll simply increase the third-party vote totals overall.

    For Immediate Release
    ITHACA, N.Y., January 22, 2012

    Dr. Scott Noren, U.S. Senate Democratic Challenger, (NY) to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, will be running as an Independent.

    Dr. Noren will be seeking ballot petition signatures as an Independent when the date is released by the State Board of Elections. He says that the Democratic Party has been overtaken by Wall Street Democracy, and is not open to challengers from within the party. His platform is very liberal on social issues but does not pander to any one group. He strongly opposes SOPA whereas Senator Gillibrand co-sponsored this bill as well as supporting PIPA.

    Dr. Noren also strongly opposed the extension of the Bush Tax cuts unlike Senator Gillibrand who voted for their extension. He is gaining support from educational institutions that also oppose SOPA, as well as being a friend of the Occupy Movement. Dr. Noren is for a complete Federal ban of hydro-fracking. He is also in favor of returning of Glass-Steagall and a pullout of the 15,000 contractors in Iraq. He feels he is the true underdog in this race and will aggressively travel the state discussing these and other issues. He is a small businessman and health care provider but feels greed has taken over, causing the Occupy Movement to form and be persistent.

    Dr. Noren, an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon is from Ithaca, NY, has been a health care provider for nearly two decades and served the U.S. Army for six years until 2003. He grew up in the Chicago area, and through military and educational training has lived in very diverse communities. He has a wife and four children, three of which reside at home including one of his children with special needs.

    Dr. Noren is focusing especially on the economy, health care issues, internet neutrality, military mindset and how to steer the economy in the right direction and get back on track. Dr. Noren was a guest on Ring of Fire talking to Mike Papantonio about community activism. This show usually features Mike Papantonio, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Sam Seder.
