Washington, D.C.– Latino Victory Fund congratulated Anna Tovar, Arizona Corporation Commission; Adrian Fontes, Maricopa County Recorder; Andrés Cano, 3rd House District; Diego Rodriguez, 27th House District; and JoAnna Mendoza, 11th Senate District.
“Latino Victory congratulates these formidable candidates for their well-deserved wins,” said Nathalie Rayes, Latino Victory Fund president & CEO. “Our candidates are among the most prolific community advocates who have dedicated their lives to creating positive change in Arizona. We’re proud to stand with Anna, Adrian, Andres, Diego, and JoAnna in this critical election to ensure Latinos are represented in Arizona at all levels of government.”
The candidate slate also signals Latino Victory’s commitment to helping flip Arizona’s state legislature–the Democrats need three seats to flip the state Senate and two seats to flip the state House. The organization supports Arizona down-ballot candidates to increase local Latino representation and help mobilize the Latino electorate to help Democratic candidates at the top of the ticket. Arizona’s Latino population is 31 percent, and there are 1.2 million eligible voters, which accounts for 24 percent of the voter share.
