George Diaz, Dinowitz’s 2020 challenger, to mount 2nd Assembly bid


George Diaz Jr., a progressive who unsuccessfully challenged state Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz in the 2020 primaries, is throwing his hat into the ring again.

Diaz’s candidacy marks the second primary challenge to Dinowitz, after Progressive Jessica Woolford, a former U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand spokeswoman, announced her candidacy for the same spot last month.
