Lori Lightfoot Elected Chicago’s First Black Woman Mayor

After eight years of rule by Rahm Emanuel – a centrist Democrat who was a White House chief of staff and congressman – the cash-strapped city of Chicago will be led now by a mayor who has never held elected office.

Lori Lightfoot’s landslide victory in Tuesday’s election capped a historic runoff campaign between two African-American women who branded themselves as progressive and independent in a city that’s been synonymous with Democratic machine politics and political bossism for most of the past century.
