ALBANY — A handful of the nation’s leading left-leaning Democrats, including Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, have picked a fight with an unexpected opponent: the New York State Democratic Party.
They are fighting over an arcane, but critical, aspect of New York’s election laws that gives small parties the ability to wield significant influence in state politics.
The practice, known as fusion voting, allows small political parties to cross-endorse major candidates, which has enabled organizations like the Working Families Party to become a darling of the progressive left and a growing irritant to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo.
The State Democratic Party on Monday passed a resolution to get rid of fusion voting. New York is only one of a small handful of states that allow it.
Mr. Cuomo has not taken a public position on fusion voting, but it seemed unlikely that the State Democratic Party — whose fealty to the governor is so pronounced that the prayer at the 2018 convention praised his accomplishments — would act without his approval.
As such, the dispute could open another fault line between the party’s establishment — represented by Mr. Cuomo, a lifelong centrist who had banked to the left in his second term — and the party’s more insurgent wing, which is still suspicious of the governor’s history of working with Republicans.
Mr. Sanders asked Mr. Cuomo on Twitter about his feelings on the issue, saying the state party’s proposed action “reeks of vengeance against progressives and the Working Families Party,” which endorsed Cynthia Nixon in her unsuccessful primary challenge against the governor last year.
“What’s more, it’s anti-democratic,” Mr. Sanders said on Twitter. “We should be for more democracy, not less. Don’t you agree @NYGovCuomo?”
That tweet was later deleted and replaced with a less confrontational comment. (Josh Orton, a spokesman for Mr. Sanders, said an early draft of the senator’s tweet was accidentally posted and then quickly replaced, and that Mr. Cuomo’s team had not communicated any reaction about the initial tweet.)
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, also on Twitter, conveyed her support for the practice, decrying “New York’s notorious closed-party primaries and calcified political machines,” and calling fusion voting “one of the few bright spots that allows independent NYers to vote their values.”
“There isn’t a single good reason to eliminate it,” Ms. Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
A Cuomo administration official suggested on Monday that the Working Families Party was creating an imagined conflict to stir up support for itself.
“I know they were humiliated in last year’s governor’s race, but that’s no excuse to run around spreading lies and ranting about conspiracies,” said Richard Azzopardi, a senior adviser to Mr. Cuomo. “It’s both sad and a bad look.”
The state party’s resolution has little practical impact; any effort to eliminate fusion voting must be approved by the Democrat-controlled State Legislature, and such legislation would likely face a difficult path, even with the state party supporting the move. Many Democratic lawmakers benefit from appearing on multiple lines.
Much of the Senate Democratic conference, which took control of Albany’s upper chamber in January, is opposed to eliminating fusion voting, including a bloc of six newly elected senators who in a letter released on Monday thanked the W.F.P., and fusion voting, for getting them into office.
“Progressives want to make it easier for voters to express their values and viewpoints, not harder,” the six senators wrote. “That means mending our current system of fusion voting, not ending it.”
A spokesman for the Senate Democrats, Mike Murphy, said there was “no legislative proposal” to end fusion voting and that the “Senate majority has been clear that we support efforts to empower voters and strengthen New York’s democracy.”
By day’s end, nearly two dozen Democratic senators, in a letter to the Democratic leader, Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins, said that abolishing fusion voting was a bad idea. They also called on Ms. Stewart-Cousins to decouple any negotiation over fusion voting from the budget, due April 1, when Mr. Cuomo could have some leverage over lawmakers. “The policy debate is too important to New York voters to be left to the 11th hour,” the letter read.
On the other side of the Capitol, the Democratic speaker of the Assembly, Carl E. Heastie of the Bronx, was more circumspect, saying he and his conference had not yet discussed the issue.
Fusion voting helps facilitate the survival of parties like the Conservative Party and the Independence Party, which often endorse Republicans. Under state law, any party which receives 50,000 votes in a gubernatorial election is guaranteed a spot on the ballot for the next four years.
Mr. Cuomo collected votes on four different ballot lines, including the Working Families Party, on the way toward a record vote-tally in November. But the W.F.P. did not endorse Mr. Cuomo in the primary; party leaders, saying they wanted to support a “real Democrat,” chose Ms. Nixon.
The W.F.P.’s bet backfired when Mr. Cuomo badly defeated Ms. Nixon in September, and the group subsequently endorsed Mr. Cuomo in the general election in a humbling reversal. Since then, the party has anticipated retribution from Mr. Cuomo, who has been known to hold a grudge.
The W.F.P. continued to issue warning shots to the Democratic Party in the last several days, sending out a battery of letters from supporters of fusion voting — including Senators Chuck Schumer, Kirsten Gillibrand, and most of the state’s Democratic House of Representatives delegation — and issuing multiple online pleas for support tagged with #StandWithWFP and #NoFusionBan.
After the vote on Monday, the group’s state director, Bill Lipton, also bashed the resolution, accusing the Democratic State Committee of “carrying Cuomo’s water to exact revenge” against progressives and his party. “Luckily, Democratic elected officials, activists and progressive leaders aren’t buying it,” Mr. Lipton said.
At the party meeting in Westchester on Monday, several supporters of the resolution seemed to suggest that Democrats were fed up with the influence that small parties like the W.F.P. wield.
“I’m tired of the tail wagging the dog,” said Tim Perfetti, the chairman of the Cortland County Democratic Party.
Jay Jacobs, the newly elected party chairman and the head of the Nassau County Democratic Party, denied that Mr. Cuomo had called for the party to take up the ban, saying that he, other county leaders and members of the party’s progressive caucus had long wanted it passed, citing election wins by Republicans thanks to third-party votes.
Still, Mr. Jacobs acknowledged that the resolution’s passage was unlikely to displease Mr. Cuomo.
“Is the governor going to be unhappy about it?” Mr. Jacobs said. “Probably not.”B:
