Rep. Takano’s Statement on Mexican Presidential Election

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Following Mexico’s election of Claudia Sheinbaum as its first woman president, Congressman Mark Takano (CA-39) released the following statement:

“I congratulate Mexico on a historic first: electing their first woman president. This is an important milestone and an opportunity for the U.S. to reaffirm our commitment to this critical bilateral relationship. Mexico is a top trading partner, an important collaborator on stopping deadly drugs like fentanyl from getting onto our streets, and a key ally on some of the most pressing challenges facing our region. I am hopeful for a new phase in U.S.-Mexico relations.”
