In the race for governor, Broad Channel resident Gerard Cronin polled 41,455 votes on the Right To Life ticket. While he came in fourth in the eight-candidate race, he did not poll the requisite 50,000 votes to keep his party on next year’s ballot. The Liberal Party candidate, Scott Jeffrey, polled only 8,965 votes. As a result, the Liberal Party will not have a ballot line on next year’s ballot.
