Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis released a video Friday night throwing her support behind Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia as he prepares to challenge Mayor Rahm Emanuel in late February.

Lewis had been preparing her own run for mayor before being diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor a few weeks ago. The video features Lewis wearing a fashionable head covering and offering her endorsement of Garcia in a series of jump cuts.

Garcia is the keynote speaker at the CTU’s 2014 Legislators and Educators Appreciation Dinner Friday night.

Also running for Chicago mayor against Emanuel is Ald. Bob Fioretti (2nd).

  1. Caps are off, her committee could front some seed money too.

    That would be a fun race, no matter the side.

    Looking forward to it.


    As an aside;

    Bless her. Praying for her, and I wish her the best.
