Adriano Espaillat is trying a second time against incumbent and long standing Congressman Charles Rangel. And try he must because the last election Espaillat lost by a mere 1,100 votes!
Think about what that means. 1,100 votes means that when you went to vote, you didn't take Abuela with you! or vice versa- Abuela didn't take you with you!
If Espaillat wins this election, it would be very special beucase that would make him the first Dominican born member of Congress.
For us, Espaillat is special because it was Adriano Espaillat that gave Victor Urbaez a letter of recommendation for law school!
