New York LP chair seeks seat vacated by Kirsten Gillibrand
New York state Libertarian Party chair Eric Sundwall has filed a campaign committee to enter the special election for the 20th Congressional District seat vacated by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
‘We actually feel that given this particular election, if there is a low turnout, strange things can happen,’ Sundwall, who plans to formally announce his candidacy next week, told the Glen Falls Post-Star.
To get on the ballot, Sundwall will need to collect 3,500 signatures within 12 days of Gov. David Paterson scheduling the special election.
