Libertarian, Anti-Prohibition Parties Win New York Ballot Case

October 23rd, 2010

    This is a big year for the New York LP.

    Congratulations.

    Warren Redlich is leading the way, and this looks like it will be the breakthrough year when the NY LP finally wins ballot status.

    Cuomo is corrupt and Paladino is unqualified and unfit, so many voters are turning to Redlich.

    Having Rany Credico appear on two lines should help as well.

    Things are truly looking up for the LP in 2010 and beyond.

    It would be more accurate to say Randy Credico won a decision which benefits both parties. He had the legal assistance of former Nassau Libertarian Party chair Gary Donoyan.
