  • It's really about schools and education. It really is about being America's safest city. I think that race is always bubbling somewhere and sometimes it does surface, but I don't think that the majority of the voters are going to pick a mayor or a candidate based solely on race.
  • I knew my own situation, my own town, and I knew I had it in my hand. Once I got it, I knew I could do things that no civil rights march ever did.
