On September 26, the Rent is 2 Damn High Party petition for New York Governor was held invalid. See this story. The story does not mention another ticket, the candidacy of Michael J. Carey under the label “Life & Justice”; but according to the New York State Board of Elections web page, that petition was also invalidated.
As a result, there are five candidates on the New York November ballot for Governor: Democratic incumbent Andrew Cuomo (who is also the nominee of the Working Families, Independence, and Women’s Equality Parties); Republican Rob Astorino (who is also the nominee of the Conservative and Stop Common Core Parties); Green Party nominee Howie Hawkins; Libertarian nominee Michael McDermott; and the Sapient Party nominee, Steven Cohn. Cohn’s running mate is Bobby Kalotee, who held himself out as the national chair of the Reform Party for a brief period in 2008. At that time, he proclaimed that the Reform Party had endorsed Republican nominee John McCain for President.
Cuomo says he believes any gubernatorial debate should include all five candidates. Astorino says he believes Hawkins should be in the debates.
