Women’s Party, In Political Disarray, Could Be A Force In Future Elections

The Women’s Equality Party was the focus of many court challenges this year. Where is the party headed?

Bill Mahoney takes a look at the party’s prospects in Politico New York, informing readers that “while both politicians moved to organize their nascent parties this summer, Cuomo’s WEP was beset by legal challenges from two factions attempting to keep him from controlling it. Due to notarization problems, the WEP was blocked from running candidates in a number of counties this year, but recent appellate court decisions seem to have left his allies firmly in control of the party.

Of the 58 local boards of elections in New York, 54 have posted detailed preliminary results from last Tuesday’s election. The WEP was on the ballot in 19 of the counties. In 16 of them, at least one candidate running on the party’s line ran in a single-victor race against a candidate who had the Reform Party’s line.”
