Rage against the Queens Machine

Longtime Democratic political consultant Neal Kwatra said that coalition building will be beneficial for certain candidates but could lead to “tactical campaigning.”


“In many races up and down the ballot there will likely be a value add for certain candidates to coalesce and work in coalition around a message of mutual validation for their respective supporters and voters whose support they’re trying to earn,” Kwatra said. “However, perhaps more importantly, will we see certain candidates in races aligning together to specifically brand a certain candidate as unqualified and try and send a unified message to voters of anybody but ‘x’? We have seen some of that kind of tactical campaigning in other RCV municipal elections around the country, like Oakland and San Francisco. Remains to be seen if it happens here too.”
