WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution on Tuesday congratulated Tim Keller on winning his election for Mayor of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Keller’s campaign was also supported by the local Our Revolution group, Our Revolution New Mexico.
“Our Revolution is proud of Tim Keller’s performance tonight,” said Our Revolution Executive Director Shannon Jackson. “Tim is the only candidate for mayor who reached the threshold of small donations to qualify for a publicly funded campaign, demonstrating the strength of his grassroots support. Victories like Tim’s, and the wave of progressive victories last week, prove that when candidates run campaigns that speak directly to the needs of the voters, without bowing to special interests, they can win.”
Our Revolution New Mexico supported Keller by sending more than 15,000 get out the vote text messages, volunteering on his campaign, and speaking with Albuquerque voters about the importance of electing a mayor who is transparent and accountable to the citizens of Albuquerque.
Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates backed by people, not corporations, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
