Content: The Liberal Party of New York State was organized in New York City in 1944 by two prominent trade union leaders and former officials of the American Labor Party, David Dubinsky, president of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union, and Alex Rose, president of the United Hatters, Cap and Millinery Workers Union. The most successful third party in America in the 20th century, the Liberal Party has sought to offer the liberal, progressive and independent voter in New York an alternative to the two major political parties and to provide through the practice of coalition politics support to liberal politicians in the other parties.
