As we reported last week, Joe Lhota has picked up the endorsement of another county committee thus dealing a severe blow to the candidacy of Adolfo Carrion, now losing his magic entry to participate in the Republican primary.
On the same day that he received the endorsement of the city's council members, Joe Lhota has racked up the endorsement of Bronx County GOP Chairman Jay Savino, the Daily Politics blog has learned.
"Joe's stance on the issues, what he's accomplished under the leadership of Rudy Giuliani, leads us to believe that he has the best experience to lead the city forward. He is exactly what New York City needs," said Savino.
Savino noted to the Daily News that Lhota is a son of the Bronx -- and coincidentally, the county party's headquarters are located in a Pelham Bay storefront that was once a candy store Lhota frequented as a kid. "He pointed out where he used purchase his Spaldeens. He showed us where the comic books used to be. And by the time he was done, most of the executive committee had the same fond memories," Savino said.
