Padernacht, NY Times Endorse Gustavo Rivera
September 6th, 2010

Daniel Padernacht, a Bronx lawyer who was campaigning to oust Sen. Pedro Espada has dropped out and put his support behind surging candidate Gustavo Rivera. There was a lot of talk that the anti-Espada vote would be split as Rivera racked up endorsements and Padernacht continued his campaign.

Here is a statement from Rivera regarding Padernacht’s decision:

“Dan Padernacht is a tireless community advocate who ran a great campaign, and his selfless decision today puts our community first. With a united front, the thousands of voters in the district who are seeking change can turn to one place. That’s the message that Dan and I are going to be getting out together over the next 9 days. I am deeply grateful for his support.”

Rivera also received the endorsement of the New York Times.
