Howie Hawkins wants Zephyr Teachout voters — both progressives and conservatives who are frustrated with Gov. Andrew Cuomo — to consider the Green Party in November.
Hawkins, of Syracuse, says his platform to shift the tax burden to wealthy New Yorkers, fight against hydrofracking and impose a higher minimum wage should appeal to most of the 180,000 voters who supported Teachout on Tuesday.
“I’m the the anti-Cuomo vote,” Hawkins said. “If that was a progressive vote, I’m the last one on the ballot.”
