Republican Candidates: Don’t Forget About Us

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

New York City has had Republican mayors for 16 years. But Republican candidates without the notoriety of Rudolph Giuliani or the wealth of Michael Bloomberg have a much harder time in a city where registered Democrats still outnumber Republicans by at least 5-to-1. As WNYC’s Beth Fertig reports, the two Republicans running for Comptroller and Public Advocate are learning that lesson first-hand.
