Democrats rallied around City Council President Lovely Warren's campaign for Rochester mayor Tuesday.

Warren defeated Mayor Tom Richards to win the party nomination. She called for the party and the community to come together. Supporters of Richards have continued to campaign on his behalf, even though he endorsed Warren and dropped out of the race. 

"There are some people who may not be happy about the fact that I won the Democratic nomination for mayor, but I know that Mayor Richards is supportive of that and he will make sure I am a successful mayor if I'm elected on November 5th," she said.

Democrats also called on the Independence Party to file campaign finance reports. The party has missed deadlines. The chairman said he is working on compiling data on donors.
