ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Zephyr Teachout survived another attempt by supporters of Gov. Andrew Cuomo to knock her off next month’s Democratic primary ballot after a judicial panel ruled Wednesday that she is eligible to run.
In the ruling, the judges concluded that Teachout meets the state constitution’s five-year residency requirement. Two Cuomo supporters had alleged that Teachout wasn’t a full-time resident.
A spokesman for the Cuomo campaign told WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman there will be no appeal to the state’s highest court.
