In addition to the Connecticut tea party group noted by Paulie, tea party activists in New York are also considering creating an independent ballot line to run a candidate for governor this November. Via TPID, WGRZ news reports:
BUFFALO, NY – “First we’re going to identify whether we’ve got a winning effort,” said Carl Paladino. And if they do, Buffalo real estate developer Carl Paladino may run for governor of New York State; but not as a democrat or republican. The Tea Party would create its own line on the ballot for him. “You need 15,000 signatures statewide,” said Ralph Mohr, Erie County Board of Elections Commissioner.
