Is it right to run without the intention of winning ? Anti Prohibition Party candidate for Governor Kristen Davis says that's her goal...To get the 50,000 votes needed to establish her party on the NY ballot.
She knows, as do all of us, that Andrew Cuomo will win by a large margin. So, Davis is trying to advance her issues and her agenda with an eye towards influencing public policy in the future...
That's the traditional role of third parties in American politics. Getting voters to help her out won't be easy. Most people fancy themselves voting for a winner, not someone with another goal in mind.
Davis was in Albany Tuesday and appeared on Capital Tonight.
