Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) – The CDU state chairman Thomas Strobl has congratulated the CDU candidate Frank Nopper for his performance in the OB election in Stuttgart.
“The CDU can also do big cities – we showed that today,” said Strobl on Sunday evening. Frank Nopper will get more out of the state capital and make the city shine beyond its borders. “The state capital is not just any city – and that’s why this victory is something very special for us.”
After counting almost all electoral districts, Nopper was ahead with around 43 percent of the votes, as the city of Stuttgart announced in the evening. The incumbent mayor Fritz Kuhn (65, Greens) did not run again after eight years at the top of the town hall.
“Frank Nopper will make our state capital Stuttgart shine again”, said the CDU top candidate for the state elections in 2021, Susanne Eisenmann.
