Former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion, who's hope of running for mayor as a Republican has been dashed by the Brooklyn GOP county's endorsement of John Catsimatidis, vowed today to stay in the race until November.
@jacobkornbluh @squarepeg_dem @gracerauh I'm in this race till Nov. I'm on the ballot w/ @ipnyc and believe NYC wants independent leadership— Adolfo Carrion, Jr (@AdolfoCarrion) April 9, 2013
Following a mayoral forum this morning, Dana Rubenstein asked Carrion if Eaton's decision would impact his plans to run for mayor. "You know, it doesn't, because I'm an independent candidate for mayor, I always was," he responded. The Republicans, he said, "wanted to explore a fusion candidacy...And I was happy to entertain and talk to them."
