About the American Labor Party
The American Labor Party was a minor local political party formed in New York City in 1936. The party's platform was support for Franklin D. Roosevelt's new deal, and simultaneously opposition to Communist labor leadership in the city. Although the American Labor party officially supported Roosevelt for president and supported the New Deal, the party did not as a rule support Democrats and endorsed Labor challengers in other races. Although separate from the American Party (La Guardia) label, the American Party later supported Fiorello H. La Guardia for mayor. Vito Marcantonio, an American Labor leader, was the final third party candidate of any party to be elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1948.
