Planned Parenthood Endorses Challengers to Espada and Diaz, Sr.
The New York Observer Politicker NY blog reports that Planned Parenthood is endorsing the Challengers to Pedro Espada and Ruben Diaz, Sr. -- two of the "Four Amigos" of the State Senate. They are joining almost the rest of the world (see note below) in throwing their support behind Gustavo Rivera against Espada, and backing Charlie Ramos against Ruben Diaz, Sr. While it's good to see any endorsements against Senate incumbents, who knew Planned Parenthood could endorse in political races?? Also, notice from this Daily News article that there are at least two other elected officials in the Bronx besides Ruben Diaz, Sr. who are willing to stand with Pedro Espada -- former Bronx Boss and Assemblyman Jose Rivera and Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo.
