Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“On behalf of the Texas Democratic Party, we congratulate San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg on his re-election and Mayor-elect Eric Johnson on his victory tonight in the Dallas mayoral election.
“Congratulations to Mayor Ron Nirenberg on his hard-fought victory in San Antonio tonight. As mayor, Ron will continue to fight for a city that workers can thrive in, families can grow in, and students can excel in.
“San Antonians showed that Trump-style politics have no place in their beautiful city. They showed us that what unites us is stronger than what separates us and strong, compassionate leadership will always emerge victorious over politics defined by hate and extremism.
“Congratulations to Mayor-elect Eric Johnson on his victory in Dallas tonight. For nearly a decade, Johnson has been a strong Democratic voice in the Texas Legislature for Texas families. We know he will continue fighting for every Dallasite’s fair shot to get ahead.
“This election shows what happens when Texas Democrats and progressives mobilize our Democratic base. Texans want leaders who fight for strong neighborhood schools, a living wage for working families, quality healthcare, and an economy that works for everyone.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Mayor-elect Johnson and Mayor Nirenberg. The future of Texas couldn’t be brighter.”
