Living La Vida Lopez
Brooklyn in Da House
The Crain's Insider reports today that at least half of the Brooklyn City Council delegation will back the Speaker candidate endorsed by the new party leader, Vito Lopez. Additionally, Lopez has apparently been cross-pollinating with disaffected Council Members from other boroughs - who are less than thrilled with their own party leaders.
Lopez's office claims that he has yet to make any firm decisions on which candidate to back.
