Rob Astorino, the 2014 Republican candidate for governor and Westchester County executive, formally filed paperwork on Tuesday that would create the Reform Party ballot line.

The move is a renaming of the Stop Common Core ballot line, which Astorino and Republicans last year formed to highlight their opposition to the controversial education standards.

While Astorino did not win last year, he did receive more than 50,000 votes on the line in order to establish it through this election cycle.

Astorino, who has not ruled out running for governor in 2018, will have former campaign manager Michael Lawler lead the new party.

Update: Lawler was initially slated to lead the party. Instead, Astorino’s camp says it will be chaired by Westchester resident Marie Smith.

In a statement, Astorino said the party will expand its approach beyond opposition to Common Core.

“Today is a good day for reformers in New York. The establishment of the Reform Party will be another force in the fight to enact desperately needed changes in New York, chief among them repealing Common Core and enacting term limits for legislators,” Astorino said in a statement. “I’m proud to have advanced these causes as the Republican and Conservative nominee for governor last year, but sadly, our state continues to falter. This ballot line was created through the hard work of New Yorkers actively engaged in seeking change, and any candidate who seeks its endorsement must commit to its principles. I look forward to continuing the fight for these reforms and strengthening our cause through this additional vehicle for change.”

The Reform Party has cause some consternation for the state’s Conservative Party, who voted to oppose the ballot line’s formation earlier this month.

Still, Astorino will likely need as many lines as he can get under the state’s fusion balloting system if he wants to win statewide in Democratic-heavy New York.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo established his own ballot line last year, the Women’s Equality Party, which will also continue through this current election cycle.
