Portland City Commissioner and mayoral candidate Carmen Rubio nabbed an endorsement from Gov. Tina Kotek, Rubio’s campaign announced Wednesday.

Kotek’s endorsement of Rubio for mayor comes as campaigns for the Portland City Council race and mayor’s seat are ramping up. To date, Rubio is one of 10 people running to be Portland’s next mayor. She’s one of three current city commissioners in the mayoral race.

Kotek says Rubio has “a track record of getting results.”

“She’s focused on what matters – cleaning up the city, getting people into shelter and affordable housing, and bringing back the city we all love,” Kotek wrote in an endorsement announcement released by the Rubio campaign Wednesday. “We can count on her to deliver the kind of change Portland urgently needs.”

Prior to being endorsed by the governor, Rubio secured an endorsement from Oregon's former governor, Kate Brown, along with prominent labor unions, including the NW Oregon Labor Council and the Portland Association of Teachers.

Terri Waller, Rubio’s campaign manager, says Rubio has built relationships with notable government figures that began long before her tenure on the council. Rubio previously worked in Portland City Hall, under former mayor Tom Potter and former city commissioner Nick Fish. She then went on to lead the Latino Network, serving as its executive director.

“Her initial work and relationships really flowed from that work in city hall working for elected officials and later as she transitioned to the nonprofit sector,” Waller says. “She certainly was working at a high level in terms of building programs that supported the needs of the community and working with government agencies to secure support for those programs.”

The endorsement marks a campaign highlight for Rubio, but it's unclear whether the governor's support will bring in more donations to her campaign. Records show City Commissioner and fellow mayoral candidate Rene Gonzalez has far outraised and outspent Rubio.

During the current election cycle, Gonzalez has raked in nearly $161,900 and has just over $106,600 on hand for campaign-related expenditures. 

Rubio, who entered the race months after Gonzalez, has pulled in nearly $87,000 in donations and has $46,550 on hand. 

There's also a stark contrast in major supporters between Rubio and Gonzalez. Rubio has courted labor groups, prominent political figures and notable nonprofit leaders. She's been endorsed by former Multnomah County Commissioner Susheela Jayapal, the majority of the Metro Council, and prominent construction industry leader Andrew Colas of Colas Construction.

Gonzalez has secured endorsements from Portland's police and firefighter unions, and garnered support from many of the same voters who backed Nathan Vasquez's campaign for Multnomah County district attorney. He's also received campaign donations from business magnates like Tim and Mary Boyle of Columbia Sportswear fame, along with former firebrand politician Betsy Johnson.

Rubio says she’s “humbled, grateful, and energized” by Kotek’s support. “Not just because I admire her commitment to public service, but because Governor Kotek knows what it will take to bring Portland to its full potential—and how important it is to have leadership alignment, at all levels of government, to achieve results.”

In her role on City Council, Rubio has overseen the city’s community and economic development sector, including the Bureau of Development Services and the Portland Housing Bureau, which works closely with private sector developers and other public agencies to map out and develop affordable housing projects.

Rubio drew outcry from environmental activists when she declined to reverse a permit for oil transloading company Zenith Energy, which was granted by Commissioner Dan Ryan before Rubio gained oversight of the Development Services bureau.
