Manhattan Based African Journal Claims Bronx African Community Supports Upper Manhattan Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez for Congress

We asked the CO-PUBLISHER AND EDITOR – IN CHIEF OF THE AFRICAN JOURNAL Barnabé Bazona Bado about the African Community endorsement of Ydanis Rodriguez for Congress. How many candidates did you interview we asked? 

We were told that Ydanis Rodriguez called the African Journal for an endorsement, and no other of the twelve candidates were interviewed. The African Journal is located at 1 East 104th Street in the congressional district of Adriano Espaillat who is an ally of Ydanis Rodriguez. There are some who say it was Espaollat who put Rodriguez up to steal votes from Councilman Ruben Diaz Sr. We called candidate Ydanis Rodriguez’s Communication Director for a comment, and did not get a reply by the time the story was written. 

Read the story below where candidate Ydanis Rodriguez who was born in the Dominican Republic is quoted saying he will be the first African in congress.
