Backstory: Senator Pedro Espada's Early Political Career

Before he was one of the most powerful people in the New York State Senate, Pedro Espada started his political career with a fringe political group called the New Alliance Party. The NAP has long since disbanded but many of its members are now part of the active New York Independence Party. On today’s Backstory we’ll talk to City Hall reporter Sal Gentile about Senator Espada's early days campaigning in the Bronx.
