Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for Governor of New York, is making huge strides in what is quickly becoming the most exciting progressive campaign of 2014. On Wednesday October 22, Hawkins took part in a televised debate in Buffalo with incumbent Democrat Andrew Cuomo, Republican Rob Astorino, and Libertarian Michael McDermott. In a PBS poll of debate watchers (that has, unfortunately, disappeared since the night of the debate) roughly 80% of respondents said that Hawkins won the debate.
