Carl Paladino is filing for an independent line on the ballot...called the Taxpayers Party....If successful this will allow Paladino to run to November no matter what happens in the September 14 GOP Primary.
Further, Paladino could end up starting a new party in NY if he gets 50,000 votes on the line.
If he loses the GOP primary, he has the option of ditching the extra line, but while party poobahs want that, many who signed the petition would want him to run on and form the new line on the ballot.
There is also a Conservative Party primary for Governor, so the lay of the land for the fall remains up in the air.
