Contribute Now to New York State Senate Challengers

These are all of the Democratic candidates who are officially running for State Senate in seats currently held by Republicans, and currently accept donations via ActBlue, upstate listed first.

For almost as long as I've been alive, the State Senate has been ruled almost singlehandedly by corrupt Republican Joe Bruno. Even though he's leaving, his machine remains. We only need two seats to restore democracy to the State Senate.

Contributions to any of these candidates will drain the resources of the Republican incumbency-protection machine, helping us win with the 62-county strategy.

There seem to be no Democratic candidates for Senate Districts 1,4,8(Long Island), 22(Brooklyn), 24(Staten Island), 39(Orange/Ulster), 47,50,57, and 62 (all upstate). The candidate in 45 doesn't seem to be on ActBlue.

Also running against Joe Robach in Rochester. Robach is a turncoat who was originally elected while a registered Democrat, but took Joe Bruno's silver -- he became a Republican after getting elected in order to get more power within the Senate.

The Supervisor of the Town of Caroline has developed an excellent reputation for getting important things done -- in an inclusive, open manner which earns the support of nearly everyone affected.

He is running against longtime Joe Bruno lackey Jim Seward, in an enormously gerrymanded upstate district.

BK Keramati


Running against Republican Hugh T. Farley in a gerrymandered district stretching north from Schenectady. Stepped up to the plate when it seemed like we wouldn't have a candidate.

Mike Russo


Susan Zimet


Running against Republican John Bonacic in another horribly gerrymandered district stretching through Delaware, Sullivan, Orange, and Ulster Counties.
