Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement on the results of the Fort Worth mayoral election



TEXAS – Here is the full statement:

“Deborah Peoples fought a strong campaign, and I thank her for stepping forward to offer Fort Worth her powerful leadership and true commitment to building a better future for Texas’ fifth largest city.

While we didn’t make it over the line tonight, the historic turnout in today’s elections shows the groundswell of Democratic energy that is rising in Fort Worth and across the state.

Texans came out in high numbers today to vote against the failures of Texas Republicans, and to demand the leadership they deserve.

“To everyone who added their support in our push to elect a proven leader and the first Black mayor of Fort Worth, thank you for your hard work to bring change and progress that all Fort Worth communities can share in.

From registering voters to defending voting rights, Texas Democrats will keep organizing to defeat Texas Republicans and fighting like hell for Texas’ future.”
