Even with Low Poll Numbers Espada May Win
Elizabeth Benjamin of The Daily News reports that although Espada has low poll numbers he still may win. The theory is that as long as it is not a head to head contest with one other candidate he may pull it out. At this point his two opponents are Gustavo Rivera and Dan Padernacht. Rivera has received the lion's share of endorsements, but the poll shows that virtually no one knows him in the district. What is really scary is that the poll shows that 78 percent of dems in his district know Espada's name--higher than Andrew Cuomo. Thankfully, 47 percent say they want him kicked out! This is the most watched race in New York state this year. Much of the effort and support to oust Espada has come from outside the Bronx. So I ask the same question again, where are our Bronx "political leaders"?
