The Green Party candidates for statewide office finished in a distant third on election day, but the party still sees some positives in the results.

Gubernatorial candidate Howie Hawkins got nearly 100,000 votes, securing the party's ballot line for the next four years, and doing better than the other two minor party candidates on the ballot.

Mark Dunlea is one of the co-founders of the New York Green Party and the 2018 comptroller candidate.
