Bronx News Roundup, Sept. 21

Now that President Obama has gotten involved in NYC politics by attempting to give Governor Paterson the heave-ho, State Senator Ruben Diaz says he’s now obligated to support Democrat Bill Thompson in the race for mayor.

This is what Diaz said:

“I deeply appreciate President Barack Obama’s concern for the future of the New York Democratic Party and the importance of maintaining a Democrat for Governor of New York State. I am hopeful that President Obama will now show the same initiative by supporting and strongly campaigning for Democratic Mayoral Candidate William Thompson.

This way, President Obama will show that his concern for the Democratic Party in New York State is unquestionable."
