NY Libertarians Back Redlich for Governor

On April 24, the New York Libertarian Party nominated Warren Redlich for governor.

Kristin Davis, the madam who provided prostitutes to former [Democratic] Gov. Eliot Spitzer, was expected to battle... for the nomination. But the Manhattanite did not show up at the convention...

Redlich also would like to run for governor as a Republican, saying Saturday he hopes to use his influence among some Tea Party activists to launch a challenge to GOP frontrunner Rick Lazio.

New York is one of the states that allows fusion, meaning that more than one party may nominate the same candidate.

Davis says that she will be listed on the November ballot under "Personal Freedom Party." She would likely take votes away from Redlich.

Lazio, a former U. S. representative, was the 2000 Republican nominee for U. S. senator. He lost to now-U. S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

New York's two U. S. senators will also be on the November ballot. Chuck Schumer is seeking his third term, while appointed Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is running for the remaining two years on the term to which Hillary Clinton was elected. Both Schumer and Gillibrand are Democrats.
