April 2, 2014

Following the results of tonight’s Democratic primary for Mayor of the District of Columbia, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:

“On behalf of Democrats across the country, I congratulate Councilmember Muriel Bowser on securing the Democratic nomination for Mayor of the District of Columbia.

“Now one step closer to election as Mayor of our nation’s capital, Muriel is the most recent example of how our democracy is strengthened by women in positions of leadership and holding elected office. Muriel’s vision to move DC in a positive direction resonates with the District’s working- and middle-class families. Her plans to invest in the city’s schools, infrastructure, and economic development embody the Democratic Party’s priorities to increase opportunity for all.

“With the primary behind us, Democrats are committed to uniting behind Muriel and working to ensure her general election victory in November.”
