10/02/2018 — Molinaro Heading To Da’ Bronx To Get Latino Ministers Support
It looks like the Republican nominee for governor will be traveling to Da’ Bronx in coming days — the county that gave incumbent Governor Andrew Cuomo the most votes in the September 13 Democratic primary — where he will be cozying up to City Councilman Rubén Díaz Sr.
“The invitation has been accepted by Molinaro,” I was told by one bochinchero close to Díaz, who is a well-known conservative Democrat. Díaz has invited Marc Molinaro to meet with the Organización de Ministros Hispanos de NY, Inc. (New York Hispanic Clergy Organization, Inc.), of which he presides.
“It could be as soon as this Thursday,” the insider bochinchero confirmed of Molinaro’s visit with the evangelical ministers.
Bochinche readers will recall that at the annual Abrazo Boricua event this summer, Councilman Díaz stunned Andrew Cuomo by endorsing him for the primary.
But that was then, and now in the general election he’s endorsing Molinaro.
One person not jumping with alegría about this visit from Molinari is the Borough President Rubén Díaz, hijo of the 75-year-old rebel.
“This is why Rubéncito has asked his father to retire on multiple occasions.” Truth be told the hijo and padre have an excellent personal relationship. But, when it comes to their politics a bochinchero defines it as: “always very tense”.
By the way, the bochinchero reminded me that “Díaz and his organization of ministers have an open door for Cuomo if he decides to address them at their Thursday gatherings.”
Hey, Guv, let us know if you’re taking Díaz up on the invite!
