Ok, so last week for April Fool’s we joked how Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were coming to The Bronx after Bernie Sanders huge rally last at St Mary’s Park.
Turns out we were half right.
Instead of the Donald, it was Ted Cruz who came to our borough with disastrous results as he was confronted by Rebel Diaz and asked why would he come to a borough that is a borough of immigrants considering his anti-immigration platform.
Not to mention that several students at a local high school forced administration to reconsider allowing Ted Cruz to speak at the school.
Today, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton rode the subway with our Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr who seemed to practically drool over being with Clinton. The duo, along with secret service and others, got on the 4 train at 161st Street/Yankee Stadium.
You thought your commute was crowded? Try riding the train with Hillary Clinton:

It appears The Bronx is the new battleground for the presidency when it comes to New York. I don’t recall in recent memory so much action in our borough from so many different candidates during one election cycle.
Hillary points out Sanders’ comment on subway tokens but she can’t even swipe her Metro Card so she’s not one to talk. If she really rides the subway she would know how to work that card on the first try!
Politicians, just like us. The struggle is real for Hillary Clinton when her NYC subway card doesn’t work on the first try. Happens to all of us. cnnpolitics.com

We’ve had candidates come through here and there but not sure if we’ve had 3 stomp grounds in The Bronx.
Bernie Sanders, without a doubt, is the obvious superstar after drawing 18,500 people to the South Bronx.
