Queens for Hillary

A reader emails:

The Queens Dem Organization will be formally designating Senator Hillary Clinton as their candidate for President of the United States on Monday at 1:30 pm.at County headquarters on Austin Street. The candidate will be there as well.

There weren’t too many other contenders up for getting the organization’s backing. But it’s an important pick-up since there is a large and influential bloc of African-American voters there who could conceivably have gone with Barack Obama, or at least pushed the organization to remain neutral.
