Someone will be disappointed soon as two candidates for Jefferson County Sheriff have submitted petitions for the Indy Party, but only one will get the Wilson-Pakula. Often the minor party state chairs play possum and tell candidates to gather petitions even though the deal may have been cut some time ago for the authorization.
It had been thought Colleen O'Neill had the inside track on the W/P but a deal for Republican John Bocciolatt may have been cut in February when other authorizations were agreed to. With the Democrat submitting 18 over the required number, the GOP may look to challenge.
I was waiting to hear more about the Family Judge race, to see what minor party primaries will surface.
On a macro level, the other petition story for today is the expected submission of Zephyr Teachout to run against Andrew Cuomo in a Democratic Primary. John Lu would also contest the LG spot against Kathy Hochul.
