The Working Families Party in New York seldom chooses its own nominee for state or federal office, but it has done so in the September 13 special election to fill the vacant Assembly seat, 54th district, in Brooklyn. This lengthy New York Times article suggests that the WFP nominee, Jesus Gonzalez, has a chance to win the election. The other candidates on the race are Rafael L. Espinal, who has the nomination of the Democratic, Republican, and Conservative Parties, as well as the “United We Can” label; and Deidra C. Towns, who is on the ballot as an independent candidate with the label “Community First.”
All three candidates are registered Democrats.
