“I’m very happy with the election results,” said James Ramos. “The current returns show that more than 67% of voters voted for change last night. I am humbled to be the top vote getter by such a large margin and will continue to build on that into the November run-off election.”
Ramos campaign spokesperson Andre Levesque commented on the results saying, “Incumbents that receive less than a third of the vote in a primary don’t win re-election. This campaign has been about offering voters a choice to vote for change. Voters are speaking with their ballot, and they are saying they want change.”
