There’s plenty of past rivalries and friction to unwind in this photo of Espaillat, Rangel, Schneiderman and Cuomo. Dominican Day Parade breakfast host Adriano Espaillat has twice lost to Rep. Charles Rangel, but they now appear to have a good relationship. Governor Cuomo and AG Schneiderman have long had friction but now are cooperating. Cuomo endorsed Rangel over Espaillat in the 2014 congressional primary, but endorsed Espaillat over a Rangel-allied challenger in the 2014 state senate primary. Espaillat honored Cuomo at this breakfast.
There were many smiles and laughs, captured here with Council Members Espinal, Ferreras and King, NYS Senators Espaillat and Peralta, NYS AG Schneiderman and NYC Comptroller Stringer.
