PARTY ENDORSEMENTS

Parties will select their 2019 candidates for the position of Supreme Court Justice at judicial delegate conventions, which are expected to be held in mid-August.

In 2005, when Judge Whalen was elected to the office he now holds, he was selected as a candidate by the Democratic party, the Working Families party, the Conservative party, and the Independence party.  During his unsuccessful candidacy in 1999, Judge Whalen was selected as a candidate by the Democratic party, the Liberal party, the Conservative party, and the Independence party.

The Working Families Party has endorsed Judge Whalen ahead of their convention.  Judge Whalen will also seek the endorsement of all other political parties holding conventions.

Judge Whalen is honored to have received the endorsement of the Western New York Democrats for Progress.
