VICTORY: DFA celebrates David Garcia’s Arizona Gubernatorial primary win
David Garcia just won the race for Arizona's Democratic gubernatorial nomination. Endorsing him in June of 2017, Democracy for America was an early backer of Garcia in Arizona's race for Governor.
Statement from Democracy for America Executive Director Charles Chamberlain on David Garcia's primary win in Arizona's race for Governor:
"David Garcia's victory in tonight's Democratic primary is a testament to his life of service and the bold, inclusive populist vision he's put forward from the very start of his campaign for governor. From his bold vision for tuition-free public college to his commitment to turning Arizona into a solar power superpower, David Garcia hasn't just said he's fighting for Arizona's working families, he's put forward an agenda that can deliver for them in Phoenix.
"Arizonans deserve a governor focused on creating a better future for all of them, not one like Doug Ducey looking to curry favor with a White House content to score political points by stoking division and hatred in their communities. David Garcia isn't afraid to challenge the racist agenda of the Trump Administration -- and, as a teacher and veteran, he's spent his life dedicated to public education and service.
"David Garcia is the kind of progressive change agent we need in leadership across the country. That's why we're honored to support him in this primary and why we can't wait to fight alongside him all the way through November." -- Charles Chamberlain, Executive Director, Democracy for America
