TUCSON – Tucson Mayor Regina Romero has endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.
Romero made an announcement on Monday on Twitter.
She said Warren “is the fighter we need to act boldly on climate change, create economic opportunity for all, and bring big, structural change to our government."
"She has proven herself to be a champion for women’s rights, and understands the institutional barriers that communities of color face in participating in our economy and democracy," Romero added. "For these reasons and many more, I’m proud to endorse Elizabeth Warren for president.”
Last November, Warren congratulated Romero on "her historic elections as the first Latina and first woman mayor of Tucson, Arizona!"
Warren has served as a senior United States Senator from Massachusetts since 2013. Formerly, she was a college law professor for more than 30 years.
