A new poll from PIX11/Emerson College Polling/The Hill has gone to show that Dan Goldman is currently leading a crowded pool of candidates in the Democrat primary for New York’s 10th Congressional District, which includes Boro Park.
Goldman was chosen by 22% of Democrat voters, while Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou, a notorious BDS supporter, had 17%. Being a heavily Jewish district, Goldman also has the upper hand now, due to an endorsement by Bobov leadership on Sunday- which stands as the first endorsement from a major Orthodox group in the district.
“With NY10 being a progressive-leaning district, all top tier candidates have strong progressive stances,” Rabbi Joel Rosenfeld, a Bobov community leader said in a statement, “but one of them stood out as someone who our community can work with, and benefit from, once elected to Congress. Dan Goldman, who has strong Orthodox Jewish family ties, understands our needs and is a strong supporter of the Orthodox Jewish community,” the statement continued.
Tonight, both Goldman and Niou will participate in a debate at 8 p.m. for voters to decide further. Other candidates who will participate are City Councilwoman Carlina Rivera, who received 13%; Congressman Mondaire Jones, also at 13%; and Assemblywoman Jo Anne Simon at 6%.
