Young Republicans in the Bronx?

BoogieDowner had previously reported on the nascent elephants trying to establish a presence in our overwhelmingly Democratic borough. Now our favorite City section reporter from the NY Times, Katie Bindley, has done some real reporting on the group (and it's sparsely attended meeting in Morris Park).

One BoogieDowner note: The leader of this young Republicans group is named Chance Haywood; is that a stage name? Just saying...it sounds like a One Tree Hill character. Good Luck, Chance. Social conservatism, small government, and tax breaks for the rich are all gonna be tough sells in the Boogiedown.
