(CHICAGO) In the race for mayor, Lori Lightfoot picked up some VERY diverse endorsements today.
Lori Lightfoot has now been endorsed on the right by the Chicago Tribune editorial page and on the left by the Bernie Sanders backers of Our Revolution. Congresswoman Robin Kelly is also a Lightfoot backer after having worked for Toni Preckwinkle.
“I feel like there will just be more connection to the neighborhoods and the neighborhoods that have not been invested in and uplifted. I see that coming.”
Cameron: “I’ve been hearing that for decades.
Kelly: “I know you have, but you have to have faith.”
And while taping “Connected to Chicago” for Sunday night at 7, Kelly also came out in support of raising the federal gas tax a penny or two to help pay for a big infrastructure bill.
