New York City Councilman and self-proclaimed “conservative Democrat” Ruben Diaz, Sr. announced that he will run in the open 15th District Democratic primary for the right to succeed retiring Rep. Jose Serrano (D-Bronx). Mr. Diaz hopes to appeal to moderate and right of center Democratic voters, a small group in this district, which is the most Democratic in the entire nation at least based upon the 2016 presidential results.
Mr. Diaz’s strategy could conceivably work if the primary, with no runoff under New York election law, becomes over-crowded as expected.
