Announcing that he has contracted Parkinson’s Disease, 11-term New York Rep. Jose Serrano (D-Bronx) said yesterday that he will not seek re-election. Counting his time in the legislature, Mr. Serrano has been in elective office consecutively since 1975. Last week, New York City Councilman Ritchie Torres (D) announced that he would run for Congress, and we can be assured he will now have a lot of company in the Democratic primary.
The majority Hispanic 15th District captures the heart of the Bronx borough, and is the most anti-Trump district in the company. The President received only 4.9% of the vote here in 2016. Clearly, it will continue to remain in the Democratic column after the next election.
