Green Party Gubernatorial Nominee Howie Hawkins

While most polls call it a two dog race for governor between Andrew Cuomo and Rob Astorino, Green Party Nominee Howie Hawkins wants to remind people there is another option.

Hawkins explains why he thinks he, not Governor Cuomo, is the best progressive option for New Yorkers.  This is the second time he's run for this office.  He garnered just 1.3% of the vote in 2010, but the latest Siena College poll showed him at 12%, a number he thinks qualifies him for any of the debates that may occur between Cuomo and Astorino. Watch the full program above.
