Challengers Emerge to Take On Espada
Great piece in the Gotham Gazette on the race to unseat Pedro Espada. Goes into a lot of good detail on the relative strength of the strongest challenger, Gustavo Rivera. Here is another interesting nugget from the piece -- the Ben Franklin Club endorsement shows a total vote of 48 people. Not bad but certainly not the powerhouse club that Assemblyman Dinowitz likes to tout? I also wonder how many of that 48 person turnout were paid staff members of the local politicos?
