Gregory Horn earns 8% in NY Assembly special election

Gregory Horn, the New York Green Party candidate in yesterday’s special election for State Assembly District 144, finished with 8% of the vote, according to WGRZ. Democrat Sean Ryan won with 71%, while Republican Sean Kipp took 21%.

Horn’s campaign is part of a trend of increased Green Party activity in western New York after Howie Hawkins of Syracuse regained GPNY’s ballot line with his 2010 gubernatorial campaign. Hawkins has scheduled a press conference for today to announce a campaign for Syracuse Common Council.
