Maloney gets Independence Party endorsement

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney’s campaign announced he has gotten the Independence Party’s endorsement for the third election in a row, all but assuring the Democrat that additional ballot line this fall.

Maloney, who has represented New York’s 18th Congressional District since 2013, will seek a fifth House term this fall, challenged by Republican candidate Chele Chiavacci Farley.

“It’s always been my priority to work with whoever has the best ideas to help make life better for Hudson Valley families, workers and veterans – whether they be Democrat, Republican, or neither,” Maloney said in a statement touting the Independence Party’s backing.

He also had the Independence line in 2016 and 2018, and won more than 7,700 votes on it in the last election. The party backed both Republican and Democratic House members from New York in the 2018 election; all but one were incumbents.

Farley, meanwhile, has gotten the Conservative Party endorsement, a customary second ballot line for Republican candidates. Maloney’s 2018 opponent, Orange County Legislator Jim O’Donnell, won almost 14,500 on the Conservative line that year.

Candidates started collecting petition signatures this week for each of the ballot lines they plan to run on in November.
