Diaz and Dinowitz to Endorse Gustavo Rivera

It's been another good day for Senate candidate Gustavo Rivera, with both City Comptroller John Liu and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio endorsing him in his race against embattled State Senator Pedro Espada, Jr.

Perhaps more importantly, Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. and Assembly Jeffrey Dinowitz have also announced they're supporting him.  They plan to make it official at a press conference on Monday morning.  More here and here.  Rivera, you may recall, has been wooing Diaz for some time.


  1. The problem with all of these endorsement is that it is just that "endorsements". It means nothing unless Diaz and Dinowitz provide troops to the race, which is very unlikely. They only provide troops for their own races. Let's see how much they are really willing to do.

  2. Wow, someone knows politics around here. Espada must be laughing his head off since he knows full well these two guys are just endorsing and they are just hoping Gustavo will win. I guarantee you will not find any of their people helping out in the last couple of weeks before eletion.

  3. So where's Carl Heastie? Still a gutless political hack. And by the way, the people who wrote the two previous quotes don't know what they're talking about.

  4. well, one of them does..lol

    carl heastie? wasnt he the one who putted the ball of to dinowitz regarding pedro and the bronx dem party? someone in here said gutless?

    and talk about guts, go jeffrey dinowitz, the one who ran around all summer with paddeernet and now at the last minute, once again flip flopping to gustavo!. Perfect Jeff

    You get to endorse, not vote pedro out of the party, get padernect about 10% of the vote-just enough for gustavo to lose-and im sure the gustavo/bill samuels monies will supply jeffrey the monies to replemish the ben franklin club whilesupplying little real support. remind me-who wins?????

  5. This is the second time you've posted something about Dinowitz supporting Padernacht and it was idiocy the first time. Dinowitz urged Padernacht to drop out of the race. He doesn't support him and never did. You don't know what you're talking about. But, for you, that's nothing new.

  6. The problem with Rivera is that he is the candidate. Espada, although severely ethically challenged, is a veteran of political wars. He does not need the institutional support that Rivera is getting. Unfortunately, the best of the 3 candidates will probably not win--Padernact

  7. Anthony,

    as usual you don't know what you are talking about. Heastie didn't put anything to Dinowitz. The responsibility of party enrollment is in the party rules as the responsibility of the "Chair of the County Committee" which Jeff Dinowitz is, not the "Chair of the Executive Committee" which is what Heastie is. You are supposed to be a "reporter" but you spew emotion and not fact. Is this because your so called candidate Mark Rodriguez fell flat?
