Kate Gallego is Phoenix’s next mayor, beating opponent Daniel Valenzuela by a sizable margin in Tuesday’s election.

“We overcame doubters, rain, dark money — and a lot of it,” Gallego said in her celebratory speech shortly after the first numbers rolled in and as the crowd chanted, “Mayor Kate, Mayor Kate.”

She also thanked Valenzuela.

“I do want to take the time to thank Daniel for running. We both made sacrifices to run,” she said. “I know he has a lot of service ahead of him.”

Shortly after, Valenzuela conceded via Twitter and at an event with his supporters.
