The New Party has some life in Wisconsin, where it has at least two local groups and ballot status as the "New Progressive Party". So far as I can tell from 2,000 miles away, the Milwaukee organization is mired in collaboration with local Democrats, but managed (I think) to get a local "living wage" ordinance passed. Several local labor leaders are members, and there is some overlap with the Labor Party.

The Madison group comes out of the old Labor and Farm Party and is much more independent. Some key people in this group are members of Solidarity, so maybe S. members on this list can tell us more.
