WATCH: Larry Sharpe Officially Launches Tri-Partisan Run for Governor of New York on Fox Business

Larry Sharpe is officially running for governor of New York again. Sharpe, who finished fourth in the 2018 race with 95,033 votes or 1.53%, will need to collect 45,000 valid signatures to secure a spot on the ballot in November.

In his appearance last night on Kennedy’s show on Fox Business, Sharpe explains that he actually plans to petition his way onto the ballot on 3 different lines… as a Libertarian, a Forward Party candidate, and on the UNITE NY line.

A recent Zogby poll gave Sharpe about 6% support in a hypothetical three-way race.

    Why would he try to qualify three different parties of which none currently have ballot access? From what I’ve read here ny rules are so tough that even qualifying just one would be far from easy. How does this make sense?

    I watched the video of his appearance on Kennedy’s show. Best wishes to Larry Sharpe for a successful campaign.

    It is going to be extremely difficult for Larry Sharpe to get on the ballot under New York’s awful new ballot access law.

    Agree with Andy that this is a very steep mountain to climb.

    I guess he’s trying to tap into the Forward Party and Unite NY to help, but what is the situation with trying to circulate three different party petitions? Does anyone know if a single voter sign all three at once as long as they’re for the same candidate?

    Additional thought — doesn’t this strategy also kill his chances of qualifying for future ballot access for any of these parties by spreading out his vote total over three lines?

  9. Andy Andy February 19, 2022

    Austin, I think you made a good point about ballot retention.

    Austin,
    Why don’t you delete this Fat Yung Ho comments?
    And get the IP and ban him?
    It is trash brought here from BAN. Which was brought there from here. Richard got rid of it. Garbage and gaslight comments.
    Throw out the trash.
    Wang Tang Fu?
    Yoo No Hoo.

    Andy: ” . . . . .It is going to be extremely difficult for Larry Sharpe to get on the ballot under New York’s awful new ballot access law. . . . .

    There has been a libertarian on the ballot for Governor every time for the past several decades, as well as a Libertarian POTUS candidate.

    Apparently it’s not that hard.

    Tony, the laws have changed and the petitioning requirements are MUCH higher this year.

    FYH – I deleted your last comment. Change your name from now on and stop with the dumb/racist jokes.

    Sorry but if I have to start policing comments on here, I’m just going to ban people.

    Larry is fantastic. Very smart at coming up with creative solutions to nagging problems, amazing communicator who respects his audience and meets them where they are, great candidate bio with actual leadership experience, and a genuinely decent human being. And Larry loves New York. If it weren’t a one-party state infested with unscrupulous machine politicians, and it had even a slightly more representative voting system, he would have a real shot.

    He avoids drama and has managed to earn the respect of virtually all factions of the Libertarian Party, which by itself deserves a medal.
