ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A former top official in the New York Democratic Party is kicking off an independent run for governor.
Stephanie Miner, who's the ex-mayor of Syracuse, made her announcement in an interview with The New York Times .
Polls show Gov. Andrew Cuomo with comfortable leads over actress Cynthia Nixon in the Democratic primary, and Republican Dutchess County executive Marcus J. Molinaro in a general election matchup.
The Times reports Monday that the governor may now face a four-way race in November. Nixon has already won the nomination of the Working Families Party, meaning she could stay on the ballot in the general election.
The price of politics as usual and the cost of corruption is weighing us all down. That’s why I’m running for Governor—not as a Democrat, not as a Republican, but as a citizen of New York. Join me and let’s build a better NY together. #MinerForNY https://t.co/OD15Zd8LO5
