Description Former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion Jr. is reportedly poised to enter the mayoral race — and he has ditched the Democratic Party to do so.

Carrion, a former City Councilman who has also served as director of the White House Office on Urban Policy, recently left the Democratic Party, and has signaled his intention to seek the Republican nomination for mayor, The New York Times reported Monday night.

The City Island resident has been having regular talks with the Republican leaders in each borough, the paper reported, citing Carrion adviser Davidson Goldin. Carrion is slated to powwow with all five party chairmen on Wednesday. He needs three of the five to back his candidacy in order to run on the GOP line. He is also said to be courting the backing of the Independence Party.

Carrion, with his connections at both the local and federal level, would be a legitimate challenger to take over City Hall, which has not gone to a Democrat since David Dinkins was elected in 1989.
