Recently, an independent committee began raising money to promote Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia for Mayor of Chicago, now that incumbent Rahm Emanuel (D) has announced his retirement. Mr. Garcia was not dissuading the group from continuing, suggesting that he might make another run for the office even though he is about to be elected to Congress.
In March, Mr. Garcia won the open 4th District congressional primary and is a lock to win the general election. Now saying that he will represent the people who are about to elect him to the US House, Mr. Garcia announced he will not become a mayoral candidate in 2019.
