Political Affiliation of Major U.S. City Mayors

Washington Post’s Harold Meyerson points out that just 20 years ago, half of America’s dozen largest cities had Republican mayors. Today, that number is just one.

Just 4 of the nation’s top 30 cities have Republican mayors.

Of the top 50 cities, just 9 are Republican, according to CityMayors.com. Two are registered independents, including our own Mayor Carolyn Goodman of Las Vegas.

There is also one mayor registered as a “Democratic Farm Labor” member in Minneapolis. Meyerson also notes that there have been a growing number of progressive mayors who have beaten out more establishment Democrat mayors in recent years.
