Zephyr Wins Court Battle on Residency

In a unanimous decision, a New York State appeals court paved the way for PEF-endorsed candidate for Governor, Zephyr Teachout, to remain on the ballot against Governor Cuomo in the Democratic primary on September 9th. The ruling today was the second time in 10 days that Teachout survived an attempt by Governor Cuomo’s campaign to disqualify her from the primary ballot.

Outside the courtroom, Zephyr said, “Andrew Cuomo put me on trial for not being a New Yorker and he proved that I am a New Yorker.”
