Do Voters Confuse Espaillat with Espada?

Print More

Looks like Adriano Espaillat's campaign thinks he has an Espada problem – that is that voters may confuse the assemblyman who is running to fill the 31st District Senate seat of attorney general hopeful Eric Schneiderman with Pedro Espada, the incumbent state senator in the neighboring 33rd District. They're both Latino of course and share the first four letters for their last name, but Espaillat apparently wants to make sure that voters know the similarities end there. This flier was distributed in at least one building in Riverdale this morning.
