In 1930, members of the Prohibition Party in New
York state organized the "Law Preservation Party".
The LPP effectively replaced the Prohibition Party
and was intended to expand the base of the party.
However, organizing the new party actually
undermined the support of the earlier Prohibition
Party in New York. In 1934, the LPP failed to gain
the requisite 25,000 votes for Governor, and on
12/11/1934 the state board of canvassers ruled that
the LPP had lost its ballot status.
