Winning back the State Senate from the Republicans is one of CWA's top electoral priorities in New York State. In addition, we needs to maximize votes on the Working Families Party (WFP) line for Governor Cuomo's re-election. Party ballot position in New York is determined by the number of votes cast for the party's nominee for Governor. Therefore, the WFP is the 4th party listed statewide because the 4th most votes by party were cast on the WFP line for Governor Cuomo in 2010. To help ensure CWA's agenda passes, we need to keep maximizing the WFP's strength.
