Espaillat....another slippery tongued politician who is physically incapable of directly answering a direct question. I've made a decision...I will never vote for anybody that refuses to directly answer a simple yes or no question,or changes the subject. The hell with all of them.

Mr. Espailliat simply would not answer the race-baiting accusation. What a joke. Vote for him if you are "Hispanic." Term limits and open primaries please.

A. Espaillat always seems to bring race into his campaign. I am fairly new to the NYC electorate and this guy turns me off completely - always throwing mud. Campaign on your own merits - forget RACE!

I guess that's a "yes" it's a dynasty thang! The more the corruption the better off we aren't. What garbage. The Espaillats and the Serranos and the Bronx Diazes!

Lenore, are you joking?

Lenore, one reason might be the memorial yesterday @WTC.

Brian--why are we voting in this primary on Thursday instead of Tuesday? Please explain again.

AND another question that I'll ask at an appropriate time--why do we not have early voting in NY State? Has anyone ever proposed it? I'd do it in a minute.
