Tucson Voters Have Elected Their First Female Latina Mayor

Regina Romero is a former Tucson City Council member that became the city’s first female and first Latina mayor on Tuesday.

She won roughly 55 percent of the votes, according to Tucson’s ABC affiliate, and she was followed up by independent Ed Ackerley with 36 percent, and Green Party candidate with 3 percent.

The former councilwoman first won against two other Democrats in the party’s primary in August, and she previously worked as the director of Latino engagement at the Center for Biological Diversity in Tucson.

And while Tucson has long been seen as a stronghold for Democrats, Arizona is mainly dominated by Republicans. However, the state has been increasingly viewed as a true battleground for the 2020 elections.

Arizona Senator Martha McSally, a Republican, is facing an uphill in a reelection bid in the state against retired astronaut Mark Kelly, a Democrat, who has outraised her three quarters in a row.

The predictions say that Trump could also face an uphill battle in the state, and a poll released by the New York Times showed that Trump was trailing former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren in the state.
