Rudy Filing in NY Tomorrow!

Rudy will be filing the appropriate paperwork to qualify for the New York Republican Presidential Primary ballot tomorrow at 12:00 pm, at the New York State Board of Elections, 40 Steuben Street in Albany. This isn't shocking, obviously, given that he's the favorite son of New York, and his massive lead in the primary polls here, but it would be newsworthy if another Republican candidate actually decided to file in New York, which none have done to date.

While tomorrow is the deadline for Republican presidential candidates to file for New York's primary by submitting petitions, December 11th is the deadline for Republicans to file if they are either (a) receiving presidential primary matching fund payments (or meet the eligibility criteria regarding matchable contributions), or (b) determined by the Republican commissioners of the State Board of Elections to be a "nationally known and recognized candidate and the candidacy of such person for the party nomination for president is generally and seriously advocated or recognized according to reports in the national or state news media."
