Real quickly, a few notes on everyone's favorite Bronx political race:

-At a debate (or more like a question-and-answer session, see a slide show of the event above with photos by Adi Talwar) at Fordham Evangelical Lutheran Church, candidate Dan Padernacht, the only Democrat to attend, said his fellow challenger, Gustavo Rivera, was showing himself to be more and more like the incumbent Pedro Espada. (We'll have some video and audio from this debate next week. Thanks to Padernacht and Green Party candidate John Reynolds for showing up, Transportation Alternatives and Picture the Homeless for organizing it, and Fordham Evangelical Lutheran for hosting.) Here's Padernacht's website.

-Rivera announced endorsements by the Daily News and Rev. Al Sharpton to add to his already long list of big-name supporters. Here's Rivera's website.

-Espada joined with colleagues to tell young people to stop sagging their pants. Here's Espada's campaign website.
