THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
REPUBLICAN LOOKALIKE RUBEN DIAZ SR.
DITCHING NY-15 DEM DEBATE
Things Ruben Diaz Sr. Will Do: Bring Ted Cruz to the Bronx, Prop Up Donald Trump, Embarrass The Bronx With Extreme Anti-Woman, Anti-Choice, Anti-LGBTQ Views
Things Ruben Diaz Sr. Won’t Do: Agree To Dem Primary Debate
BRONX, NY - Ted Cruz super-fan and Republican lookalike Ruben Diaz Sr. has a lot of courage when he’s behind a keyboard penning weird ‘What You Should Know’ email screeds against everything from marriage equality to women’s right to choose to stem cell research...but does not have much bravery when it comes to debating his own decades-long conservative agenda that would make him Donald Trump and Mike Pence’s favorite New York politician. Rather than owning up to his conservative positions, Diaz Sr. is bailing on the debate which is scheduled for May 14th and is hosted by the Gotham Gazette, City Limits and South Bronx nonprofit The Point CDC, and will be streamed online. Bronx United, an Independent Expenditure formed to stop Diaz Sr., in the NY-15 (South Bronx) Democratic primary on June 23, released the following statement:
Republican lookalike Ruben Diaz Sr. has spent his entire career pushing a virulently conservative anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ equality and anti-science agenda that he’s now clearly scared to debate. Democratic voters in the South Bronx deserve better than a Ted Cruz conservative who is afraid to finally own up to his decades of ineffective leadership that gives him the headlines he loves but doesn’t help the South Bronx. In a time when the South Bronx needs real, dynamic leadership in Washington, Republican lookalike Ruben Diaz Sr. will just bring his carnival of failure and embarrassment.
