The criminals at the Independence Party are also looking for Cuomo to be on their ballot line, though Cuomo said he hasn't made up his mind about that (the paperwork he filled out says otherwise.)
Now it's the Working Families Party's turn to decide what to do with Cuomo.
There seems to be a split between the leadership of the party, which looks to back Cuomo, and the rank-and-file, which seems less inclined to back him:
“The people I've spoken with, there isn't anybody supporting Cuomo,” Dorothy Siegel, the party treasurer and chair of the W.F.P.'s South Brooklyn chapter, told Capital. "Something could happen, but I don't know what it would be."
"The state committee members can't endorse Cuomo, because he goes against what we stand for," she said. "Whoever is endorsed will be articulating our views. They won't be Republican views, or Democratic views. We believe now, more than four years ago, that our views are mainstream; they're popular. But you can't win at the state level with a third-party candidate. Our interest is not in teaching him a lesson, or denying him the endorsement—this is what we believe in.”
I'm a bit of a cynic when it comes to politics, so I suspect the WFP leadership will prevail and give Cuomo his coveted WFP ballot line.
What do you think?
Does WFP endorse Cuomo?
