In a rare move in a race for a non partisan political office, the Texas Democrat Party today endorsed Ron Nirenberg for re-election as San Antonio's Mayor, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
State party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa said of Nirenberg, 42, "He has been a champion for building a city that San Antonians need-- one that workers can thrive in, one that families can grow in, and one that students can excel in."
Hinojosa cited the city's strong economy, and continuing growth of the Pre-K for SA program.
Even though the race is non partisan, Hinojosa tied Greg Brockhouse to 'a Republican Party that has been defined by hate and extremism.'
San Antonio won't stand for that, and neither should Texas Democrats," he said.
“I’m proud and honored to have the endorsement of the Texas Democratic Party," Nirenberg said in a statement. "We agree that our shared values of inclusion and shared prosperity are the foundation of a solid future for San Antonio and Texas and I’m glad we have their support in the race for Mayor.”
