NYC Mayor: Espaillat to back Eric Adams for mayor after dropping Stringer

Eric Adams is expected to get the backing of Rep. Adriano Espaillat, according to three people familiar with the decision, which could be announced as early as Sunday.

The endorsement comes three weeks after Espaillat rescinded his support of Scott Stringer in the wake of a sexual assault allegation that he has denied. The Latino congressman could influence a bloc of voters in his district, which includes parts of Harlem, Washington Heights, Inwood and the West Bronx. The sources requested anonymity as they were not authorized to discuss the endorsement.

Espaillat was part of an exodus of support from the Stringer camp after lobbyist Jean Kim in April accused the city comptroller of sexually assaulting her 20 years ago when she volunteered on one of his campaigns. Stringer has vehemently denied the accusation and said the two were in a consensual relationship, but the allegation was enough to cost him key backers.

4. Define "pro-guns"

I highly doubt that the NRA will be endorsing Adams.
