In this week’s news section, I wrote about the difficulties independent and third-party candidates have getting on the ballot in New Mexico. We’re the only state in the union without such a candidate running for Congress or in a statewide race. There are two Libertarians running in state Legislative districts—one of them as a write-in.

In contrast, New York has seven candidates for governor, all of whom attended a debate last night.

Andrew Cuomo

Tea party-backed Republican
Carl Paladino

Green Party candidate
Howie Hawkins

Warren Redlich

Freedom Party candidate
Charles Barron

Anti-Prohibition Party candidate, former madam
Kristin Davis

Rent is Too Damn High Party candidate
Jimmy McMillan
