The World's Tallest Politician Is From New York

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Robert Cornegy Jr. is a member of the city council representing Bedford-Stuyvesant. The Guinness World Records people certified him as the tallest male politician at 6-foot-10. It is said that the tallest presidential candidates usually win. So Mr. Cornegy, here's your chance. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
