While much of the prevailing media wisdom is that “History was made” for “diversity” in Chicago as a result of Tuesday’s mayoral Election, we have a different takeaway. Democrats at large and Chicago Democrats in specific should be embarrassed by Chicago’s election results.
Chicago’s next mayor will make history as the first black woman to run one of the three largest cities in the U.S. One of the two candidates would also be the first openly gay mayor of a city this size. https://t.co/9CpLkteEEq

Kudos to the Windy City for embracing diversity in its Mayoral election! https://t.co/dIv1CaWK0C

I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and read the @chicagotribune every day. I assumed that Richard Daley or his family would always be mayor; that was the Chicago machine way.

Yes, it is historic that an African American woman will be the next mayor of Chicago. Sadly, no matter who wins the runoff, the next mayor will be a progressive who will only dig Chicago into a bigger fiscal hole than the one the city is already in.
