In this Tuesday, April 12, 2011 file photo Adolfo Carrion Jr., regional administrator of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, speaks at Triscuit Crackers 'Home Farming Day' celebration in New York's Madison Square Park. It sounds like a mismatch: a son of an illustrious Republican president supporting a Democrat-turned-independent, ex-Obama administration official in his quest to run for New York City mayor on the GOP line. But Michael Reagan is urging city Republican leaders to give Adolfo Carrion Jr. permission to run in the primary, saying it would strike a note of openness and diversity for a party that’s grappling with how to attract Hispanic voters.
