Is New York City Ready For A Black Republican Mayor?

Azi Paybarah, a reporter for Capital New York writes about the the possible mayoral run  of A. R. Bernard, the Founder, Senior Pastor and CEO of Christian Cultural Center (CCC) located in Brooklyn.

“‘How does a Republican win for mayor? How does a black Republican run and win, for mayor?’ That was New York 1 News host Errol Louis’ question to Rev. A.R. Bernard last night, as the pastor of the Brooklyn-based mega-church spoke on television for the first time about his potential mayoral bid. ‘Fine, I’m a Republican,’ Bernard said, before talking about leadership and the need to reach out beyond just Republican voters in New York. When asked, Bernard said he would not personally perform a same-sex marriage ceremony if he were elected mayor.”
