Manhattan state senator pushes for Donald Trump’s disqualification from November presidential ballot in New York

Manhattan State Sen. Brad Hoylman-Sigal filed an objection with the state Board of Elections Tuesday, seeking to block Donald Trump’s name from appearing on New York’s ballot in this year’s presidential election.

The move from Hoylman-Sigal (D), along with City Council Member Shekar Krishnan (D-Queens) and Gertrude Fitelson — who is not a lawmaker — came just hours after New York Republican election officials decided not to remove the former president’s name from the April primary ballot.
