DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after Democrats Tim Keller and Cynthia Borrego were elected Mayor and City Councilor in Albuquerque, flipping both seats from red to blue:

 “Congratulations to Tim Keller and Cynthia Borrego on their election as the next mayor and city councilor of Albuquerque, New Mexico, flipping both seats from red to blue. Voters are sick and tired of Donald Trump’s Republican Party, and they’re sending Democrats like Tim Keller and Cynthia Borrego to City Hall to fight for working families. The DNC invested in the Democratic Party of New Mexico to support the important work being done by the state party and to organize and mobilize Democratic voters behind our shared values. Tonight’s results have once again added to our growing streak of victories from last week and over the summer. From Albuquerque to Manchester, Democrats are flipping municipal seats and building a blue wave up and down the ballot across the country. This is the new DNC and this is just the beginning. Democrats are going to keep organizing and leading with our values, and that’s why we’re going to flip even more seats up and down the ballot in 2018 and beyond.”

READY TO KEEP FIGHTING?
