Reports in the New York Post have drawn the conclusion that New York City Councilman Ritchie Torres (D) has made the decision to challenge veteran Rep. Jose Serrano (D-Bronx) in next year’s Democratic primary. Counting his time in the state legislature, Rep. Serrano has represented his portion of the Bronx for what will be 46 years come the next election. He was originally elected to Congress in 1990 and has had little in the way of challenges ever since.
For his part, Councilman Torres is not denying the Post story, but says he will make his plans clear at a later date.
