Say what? Dem group endorses GOP candidate Phyllis Nastasio in her bid to pull off Assembly upset


Days before the Bronx Democratic Party selected John Zaccaro Jr. as their nominee for New York State Assemblymember Nathalia Fernandez’s 80th District seat, the Northwest Bronx Democrats put their support behind candidate Phyllis Nastasio — the Republican in the race.

The fate for most aspiring Bronx officer-seekers running on the Republican or Conservative ticket is often a landslide loss, especially given the overwhelming Democratic voter advantage of more than 540,000 registered voters in the borough.
