Ballot Access News

A poll released at the end of September for U.S. House, New York 22nd district, has these results: Republican Claudia Tenney 35%; Democrat Kim Myers 30%; independent candidate Martin Babinec 24%; undecided 11%.

Babinec won the Reform Party nomination in June with write-ins. He is the only New York Reform Party nominee for Congress who is not the same person as the Republican nominee. Normally the Reform Party of New York operates as a satellite of the Republican Party. Babinec has spent $1,000,000 for his campaign, and is a businessman.

The 22nd district is usually a safe district for Republicans. The incumbent is not running for re-election. Babinec has been allowed into all the debates. The 22nd district is in central New York and runs from Lake Ontario to the Pennsylvania border. It includes Utica and Binghampton. Thanks to Michael Drucker for this news.
