New York Staters: Meet Zephyr Teachout, the progressive law professor you should vote for in the Democratic primary against Andrew Cuomo tomorrow.
The progressive Working Families Party asked her to run for governor, before they dicked out and endorsed Cuomo.
Do it to show Cuomo he has to pay attention to liberals. Do it because you want more women in government. Do it because Cuomo tried to push her off the ballot. Do it because Teachout doesn’t want to funnel tax money to charter schools and private schools.
Do it because her Lieutenant Governor choice is Tim Wu, another law professor who coined the term (and fought for) “net neutrality.” And thanks to New York State electoral rules, even if (when) Teachout doesn’t beat Cuomo, Wu could still beat Cuomo’s running mate Kathy Hochul.
