DNC Vice Chair R.T. Rybak, mayor of Minneapolis, released the following statement after Greg Stanton’s victory in the race for mayor of Phoenix:
“Mayor-elect Stanton has a record of standing up for the middle class and promoting an economy that gives Americans a fair opportunity at reaching the American Dream. His victory is a welcome development in the Grand Canyon State, where Arizonans have been devastated and homeownership decimated over reckless economic policies on Wall Street.
“Mayor-elect Stanton won because people in Phoenix rallied around his message of creating an environment where our families can win the future: a fairer economy that spurs growth for small businesses, safety, and better education for our children. I congratulate Mayor-elect Greg Stanton for a hard-fought victory in Phoenix.”
