1804 New York gubernatorial election
|Elections in New York State|
The Clintonian faction of the Democratic Republican Party nominated former Attorney General of New York and Supreme Court of New York justice Morgan Lewis. They nominated state senator John Broome for Lieutenant General.
Although a Democratic-Republican, incumbent Vice President of the United States Aaron Burr was backed by members of the Federalist Party who wanted to see New York join the New England states in an independent confederation. This scheme was opposed by High Federalist Alexander Hamilton, the party's national leader. Burr subsequently killed Hamilton in a duel. U.S. representative Oliver Phelps was nominated for Lieutenant Governor.
The Clintonian ticket of Lewis and Broome was elected.
|Democratic-Republican (Clintonian)||Morgan Lewis||30,829||58.20%|
|Democratic-Republican (Tammany Hall)||Aaron Burr||22,139||41.80%|
