THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
NEW AD ASKS RUBEN DIAZ SR. IF A MAGA HAT IS HIDING UNDER HIS COWBOY HAT
BRONX, NY -The weird relationship between Republican Lookalike Ruben Diaz Sr. and Donald Trump is the focus of a new 15-second digital ad released by Bronx United today that asks Diaz Sr. a simple question: is there a MAGA hat underneath his cowboy hat? Diaz Sr. is running in the Democratic primary on June 23 in NY-15 in the South Bronx, but has Trump/Pence conservative positions on issues like a women’s right to choose and LGBTQ rights and has criticized Democratic leaders for fighting against Trump’s wall.
From a spokesman for Bronx United: “Republican Lookalike Ruben Diaz Sr. has long pushed a conservative agenda that would make Donald Trump and Mike Pence proud to call him their favorite New York City politician. It’s time Ruben Diaz Sr. dropped the charade, put on a MAGA hat, and owned up his extremely conservative record.”
About Republican Lookalike Ruben Diaz Sr.
New York City Council Member Ruben Diaz Sr. is a Ted Cruz super-fan who pens weird ‘What You Should Know’ email screeds against everything from marriage equality to women’s right to choose to stem cell research. He has an extensive history of extreme rhetoric and policy positions that place him firmly in the MAGA camp. Recently in 2019, Diaz Sr. interrupted the sensitivity training in the New York City Council saying “ “I’m not gonna rat my people out! This place is full of rats!” ...So we’re supposed to be rats?” In 2019 he also said the New York City Council was “controlled by the homosexual community.”
Bronx United is an independent expenditure with the sole focus of defeating Diaz Sr. and denying him a seat in Congress where he would continue his destructive and hateful career. For more information visit https://www.bronxunited.com/
