Equality Arizona Endorses Kate Gallego in Phoenix's District 8 City Council Race

Kate Gallego's impressive performance in the August race for a seat representing Phoenix's Eighth District has earned her an endorsement from Equality Arizona.

Gallego nearly won the race outright with 47 percent, but was just shy of the 50-percent-plus-one threshold needed to avoid the November 5 runoff election.

Pastor Warren Stewart, one of several other candidates in the District 8 race, came in second place with 21.85 percent of the votes, or 2,882 ballots. By comparison, voters cast 6,207 ballots for Gallego.
