The Green Party is “very focused” on finding a candidate to run in the 11th congressional district race following the resignation of Republican Michael Grimm, former gubernatorial candidate Howie Hawkins on Friday said.

“That’s a special election, so we’re very focused on that,” Hawkins said today while in Albany to respond to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s $141.6 billion budget presentation.

The district, which covers Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn, was vacated by Grimm following his guilty plea on a felony count of tax evasion.

Republican District Attorney Dan Donovan is the GOP’s candidate, while Democrats are eyeing Assemblyman Michael Cusick to run.

Hawkins declined to give a name as to who is being considered in the NY-11.

“Nobody I can name,” he said. “There are people who are being talked to.”

Last year, Green Party candidate Henry Bardel received 2,687 votes as Grimm easily defeated Democrat Domenic Recchia.

The Green Party plans to field candidates in several upstate congressional races, including the open 19th congressional district and as well as the central New York seat held by GOP Rep. John Katko.

“We are getting inquiries from people all over the state,” Hawkins said of the candidate search.
