Likely a very crowded Republican field

Tom has the early petition signature numbers;

1,250 needed
Frank Powers ~ 2,000
Robert Straniere ~2,500
Jamshad Wyne ~ 3,000

Brooklyn Conservative Party nominee Paul Atanasio and Independence Party nominee Carmine Morano also had signatures collected on their behalf to run on the Republican party line. Both would need permission from the state Republican Party to run on the Republican line since neither are registered Republicans.

On the Conservative Party side of things Paul Atanasio filed 362 signatures, needing only 100. Meanwhile in Staten Island the Conservative Party simultaneously collected over 500 signatures for Mike McMahon, a Democratic candidate to get him on the Conservative Party line. Atanasio would not need permission to run on the Conservative Party line since he is a registered Conservative, however McMahon would need permission since he is a reigstered Democrat.

Make sense? Good.
