Governor before election

Mario Cuomo

Elected Governor

Mario Cuomo

The 1990 New York gubernatorial election was held on November 6, 1990 to elect the Governor and Lieutenant Governor of New York. The Incumbent governor Mario Cuomo won a third term, made him become the first Democratic governor elected three times since Herbert H. Lehman. While the Republican Party and Conservative Party had run the same candidate by taking advantage of New York's fusion voting laws in every gubernatorial election since 1974, in the 1990 election the Republicans nominated Pierre A. Rinfret while the Conservatives nominated Herbert London. In the General Election, Rinfret came in second over London by just 38,334 votes. Had London received more votes, the Conservative Party would have secured Line B on all ballots in New York through the 1994 New York gubernatorial election. Per the New York State Constitution, the Conservative Party would have taken over privileges reserved for the two parties obtaining the most votes in the most recent gubernatorial election, including authority over state and county Boards of Elections. Since this election, the closest a minor party has come to taking over Line B with a candidate of its own was in 2002, when Tom Golisano, running on the Independence Party line, received 14.28% of the vote behind Carl McCall's 31.50% on the Democratic line, a difference of 17.22%. The closest a single candidate has been on two different lines using fusion voting since the 1990 election was in 2006. In that election, John Faso received 23.54% on the Republican line and 3.59% on the Conservative line, a difference of 19.95%.

Democratic primary



Republican primary

In early 1990, Rudy Giuliani and J. Patrick Barrett, Chair of the New York State Republican Party, were considered among the possible contenders for the Republican nomination for governor.[1] Ultimately, Pierre Rinfret was chosen "by acclamation" as the Republican nominee for governor at the New York State Republican Convention held on May 30, 1990, in Rye Brook, New York.[2]
