Assemblyman Who Beat Bx. County Heads Back to Albany
Here is a profile by the Bronx News Network on Assemblyman Nelson Castro who beat back a challenge by District Leader Hector Ramirez. No big deal that another incumbent won, but what makes his win significant is that Ramirez was backed by Bx. Boss Carl Heastie, Ruben Diaz, Jr. and the rest of their cabal. In fact, Heastie stayed out of the Espada race and most other races to focus on this one. So it was the premiere race for Heastie & Co. and they flopped -- so is Bronx County a paper tiger?
