* Sneed

Sneed has learned that mayoral candidate Susana Mendoza has chosen Kathy Byrne, the daughter of former mayor Jane Byrne, to be the chairperson of her campaign.

Reached by phone, Kathy Byrne said, “I am thrilled that Susana chose me for this job. And I look forward to working for the second woman who may become mayor of Chicago. I’ve been impressed with her for a long time. I’ve watched her performance. She has got some strength [to stand up] against all the bullyboys, and I look forward to fighting on her behalf for the people of Chicago.”

* Garry McCarthy…

The voters have been duped again as another ‘Machine Democrat,’ Susana Mendoza, following the lead of her Democratic Party boss, Toni Preckwinkle, just got elected to one position, but now wants another. Both are entering the mayor’s race after Rahm Emanuel dropped out. My question is, where was their commitment and courage when Rahm was still in the race?

Um, if she’s “following the lead” of her party boss, wouldn’t she stay out of the race?

* Paul Vallas…

Susana Mendoza’s assertion that she fought Rahm Emanuel’s efforts to drastically raise city sticker prices is absurd. As news stories earlier this year by WBEZ and ProPublica painfully show, Mendoza pushed a draconian city sticker penalty program that led to the financial ruin of thousands of Chicago’s neediest families. While she proclaims herself the enemy of bullies, she seems most adept at bullying Chicago’s most disadvantaged into bankruptcy court.

Ouch.

* ILGOP…

“Before the election last Tuesday, Susana Mendoza was disingenuous and mislead the public when she said she was focused on her race for Comptroller. A leaked campaign video revealed she was already planning on running for Mayor. Now Mendoza says she’s concerned about high taxes, but she spent a decade in Springfield working with Mike Madigan to raise taxes on hardworking, middle-class families. The last thing the City of Chicago needs is another self-serving politician like Suzana Mendoza.” - ILGOP Chairman Tim Schneider

    Mendoza & Preckwinkle are probably headed to a runoff, but then again Bill Daley keeps on raising money (Chris Kennedy’s probably wondering what happened to the golden rolodex during the primary).


  2. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:30 pm:

    Dear ILGOP,

    If Mendoza was so awful, ya couldn’t find anyone to beat her.

    How’s that taste? Good? Yummy? Tasty?

    Maybe y’all should sit this out and rethink why Raunerism got shellacked and where ya go from here.

    She’s so awful… ya couldn’t find anyone who could beat her.

    Is Kathy Byrne an odd choice? Does she have much experience or is it more like an honorary thing?


  4. - Shytown - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:32 pm:

    Hey Tim Schneider, how’s retirement going for you?


  5. - thunderspirit - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:35 pm:

    I’m no fan of Vallas, but that’s a quality oppo hit.


  6. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:38 pm:

    In some ways, Mendoza tried to grasp the mantle of JBT as a candidate, the Kathy Byrne point is kinda like that here with Jane Byrne’s legacy and Mendoza.

    We’ll see if it’s just a Sneedling.

    Stay tuned.


  7. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:39 pm:

    ===Is Kathy Byrne an odd choice?===

    She is a trial lawyer with strong connections to organized labor. That her mother was also Chicago’s first female mayor doesn’t hurt either from a symbolic perspective. Plus, having met her, I think she is nice, smart, caring and warm. She’s a good choice.


  8. - Chicago Cynic - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:40 pm:

    Mendoza and Preckwinkle will likely be the runoff candidates and, if I had to put money on it, I’d expect Mendoza to win. But not before an ugly, bruising fight. Politics is all about matchups and if the voters are going to hold her running for one office while intending to run for the other against her, that dog won’t hunt in a runoff.


  9. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:43 pm:

    –Um, if she’s “following the lead” of her party boss, wouldn’t she stay out of the race?–

    LOL. Guess Ol’ Gar didn’t think that one through.

    And what’s with Schneider chiming in on a Chicago mayor’s race, of all things, given the statewide disaster he presided over last week?


  10. - Cheryl44 - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:46 pm:

    Didn’t McCarthy move back to NY? I thought Guiliani said something like that a while back.


  11. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:48 pm:

    ===I’m no fan of Vallas, but that’s a quality oppo hit.===

    OK, so who does Vallas think shouldn’t have to pay for a city sticker? I remember him as Revenue Director and I don’t recall his sympathy for scofflaws back then. I wonder what changed his mind?


  12. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:50 pm:

    ===The GOP will not have a candidate this election cycle in the Chicago mayoral race.===

    Has anyone told McCarthy?


  13. - Steve - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:51 pm:

    If Madigan can get the progressive income done : Chicago might get a city income tax. The flat tax wasn’t always a thorn in having a city income tax. NYC has one. So does Philadelphia. Why not Chicago? It’s not like there will be a tax revolt.


  14. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:52 pm:

    ===Has anyone told McCarthy? ===

    Forget McCarthy, has anyone told Willie Wilson? He’s the only open Trump/Rauner supporter in the race.


  15. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 1:56 pm:

    Mendoza all day over Preckwinkle, McCarthy and the rest of the rabble running for Mayor


  16. - Gohawks123 - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:02 pm:

    Alright GOP we get it, y’all got no say in anything anymore. Just keep crying from all the defeats and realize you got no clear shinny trophy candidate in this one either.


  17. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:04 pm:

    ===He’s the only open Trump/Rauner supporter in the race===

    That’s true. But I have a feeling that, if given the choice, most Trump voters in Chicago would vote for McCarthy over Wilson.

    But let’s face it, that’s on;y a few thousand votes at most. Neither of these two is in serious danger of being elected Mayor.


  18. - Anonimity - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:15 pm:

    As I sit here sipping a Coke, I will take Mendoza over Preckwinkle in a runoff.


  19. - Boone's is Back - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:20 pm:

    Why is the ILGOP commenting on Chicago mayoral candidates? P.S. glad to see that Rich didn’t link Kass’ bizarre lamb chops article about Mendoza to this post…


  20. - Original Rambler - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:22 pm:

    I was unaware that Kathy Byrne had any campaign experience. Anyone here know of any? Being a trial lawyer can make you rich, but I’m not sure how that qualifies you to run a campaign of this size and complexity. I’m a little flummoxed here.


  21. - Almost the weekend - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:33 pm:

    This will be a nastier race than the governor’s race. Both the favorites, Mendoza and Preckwinkle, have an oppo book the size of a CPS history book.


  22. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:35 pm:

    Tim will go back to his golf course, he’s making lots of money thanks to Trump’s tax cut for the rich.

    “I was unaware that Kathy Byrne had any campaign experience. Anyone here know of any? Being a trial lawyer can make you rich, but I’m not sure how that qualifies you to run a campaign of this size and complexity. I’m a little flummoxed here.”

    She’s campaign chair, not campaign manager. Depending on the experience of the team and the chair, that role can be anything from purely symbolic to incredibly active. We don’t know what they have planned here.


  24. - dbk - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:37 pm:

    Agree with others above, it currently looks like Preckwinckle v. Mendoza in the runoff.

    It’ll be interesting to see how they differentiate themselves policy-wise over the next few weeks.

    I realize you cannot afford a decent proofreader, but auto-correct is free. Please, that was painful to look at.


  26. - Brady Press - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:40 pm:

    Kathy Byrne is a great, synergistic choice for Susana. Besides aligning on many issues, they are both energetic, intelligent, strong-willed women who love Chicago.


  27. - Lefty "Lefty" Lefty - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:45 pm:

    I went from the Beachwood Reporter twitter to here. My hope for my hometown was to have MRE in the rearview mirror for good. If Mendoza wins apparently more of the same is coming.


  28. - CubsFan16 - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 2:50 pm:

    I agree with 47th Ward. Jane Byrne was a trailblazer in Chicago politics, if Kathy Byrne is anything like her mother, she is definitely a good choice.

    Forget a runoff - we need a full blown Mayoral playoff.

    Imagine some of the first round matchups: McCarthy-Lightfoot, Chico-Vallas, Brown-Wilson…

    Mendoza and Preckwinkle get first round byes, obviously

    ==Why do we care what the ILGOP has to say about the City of Chicago?==
    Careful, some 130,000 Chicago residents just voted for Rauner. Slightly more voted for Trump in 2016. Many of those voters will vote for someone in the mayoral race. If they vote in bloc, they could affect the race.


  38. - Wentworth - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:10 pm:

    Cannot make predictions until petitions are turned in. Once that happens, it will be clearer. Some of the also-rans will not stay in the fight. Some are more threatening to TP and SM than others.

    Susana or TP will make the runoff but not both. Bill Daley will slide in there, too. TP vs. BD will be a major race. The Chicago business community will not let Susana become Mayor.


  39. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:12 pm:

    –If they vote in bloc, they could affect the race.–

    Uh huh. And who will organize this powerhouse Trump/Rauner Chicago bloc?


  40. - Wentworth - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:17 pm:

    Both Richard Daley and Rahm understood that Chicago actually has a surprisingly high number of republicans. Maybe not crazy Trump type Republicans, but Republicans none the less. Rauner even carried some wards in 2014.

    This is part of the somewhat nebulous yet exceptionally powerful business community that they both counted on to ride to their victories (when cobbled together with other blocs).

    These folks will leave the city if the tax regime gets worse. They threaten it but this time they will actually do it. They have one or two candidates they will support but Susana will not be one of them.


  41. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:19 pm:

    =who will organize the Trump/Rauner block?=

    Dan Proft?


  42. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:20 pm:

    Proft is not a full fledged Trumpkin, and Proft walked on Rauner, and made sure Ives helped in the burying of Rauner.


  43. - Wentworth - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:22 pm:

    They don’t need to be organized, they have no problem finding and supporting their candidates.

    What OW and others on here fail to recognize is that the anti-Susana messaging is going to be ruthless. They hold on to her statewide wins as proof that she is untouchable. They fail to realize that *absolutely nobody* cares about Comptroller.

    Mayor is a different animal and people will be paying attention.


  44. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:26 pm:

    ===the anti-Susana messaging is going to be ruthless.===

    Meh.

    Mendoza needs to get to the runoff, then make it a binary choice, likely with Preckwinkle.

    I’m sure Mendoza’s approvals aren’t upside down(?)


  45. - Wentworth - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:28 pm:

    Will be interesting to see who Chuy supports. I don’t think it will be Susana.


  46. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:33 pm:

    Bill Daley isn’t a serious candidate.

    There’s a Daley fatigue. If there wasn’t, once Bill Daley announced, more would’ve dropped out.


  47. - Wentworth - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:36 pm:

    OW: I don’t think that’s right. Forget polling for a minute and actually talk to Chicagoans in various neighborhoods and ask about Daley and you might be surprised with what you hear. You don’t live in Chicago, I get it, but you’d be surprised.

    Enough to win? Hard to say. Enough to get into a runoff when folks are beating on one another relentlessly? Probably.


  48. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 5:39 pm:

    ===Forget polling for a minute and actually talk to Chicagoans in various neighborhoods===

    LOL… no.

    Polling > anecdote

    ===What about Mendoza is so offensive to the business community?===

    She’s not Bill Daley, I suppose, who is beloved in the neighborhoods if you ask folks.

    Of course, I rarely venture east into DuPage, let alone She-Caw-Go, with its stop lights, one way streets, and horseless carriages.


  55. - Bobby Beagle - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 7:04 pm:

    The pile on begins:
    https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/susana-mendoza-defensive-day-one-mayoral-campaign/

    As someone who follows Chicago politics I really don’t see her appeal, and I believe her viability is being grossly over-estimated by many on this board. Frankly she doesn’t have nearly the level of name recognition as many other candidates: the pundit class may be well aware of her, but what about most average voters?

    Now you have multiple Latinx figures coming out strongly against her, and there is perhaps no more damning label than Rahm’s 3rd term for many voters who don’t know much about her. I was hearing that around the SW side before she announced and I imagine it will really stick as things move forward.

    Overall I predict this naked opportunism will not work in her favor in the long run. She would have been much better off starting to work for 2023 from the safety of her current position than trying to jockey this at the 11th hour, complete with a fresh line of attack in her poor handling of coyness in eying the mayors office while running for statewide office.

    For the pundit class this may be obvious business as usual, but as a soundbite and a hit piece for the average Jose trying to make a decision I think it will really hurt her.

    Her entering the race may also have some odd unintended consequences in terms of the runoff. I see the possibility of McCarthy making the run off at this point depending on what the final field looks like.


  56. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 7:11 pm:

    ===As someone who follows Chicago politics===

    I guess you told us.

    I’ve been told polling doesn’t matter, just talk to people in neighborhoods, and Capitol Fax commenters, I guess, don’t follow Chicago politics adequately enough compared to… whomever.

    ===I was hearing===

    LOL…People hear lots.

    ===but as a soundbite and a hit piece for the average Jose ===

    Average… Jose?

    ===McCarthy making the run off at this point depending on what the final field looks like.===

    McCarthy isn’t all that beloved, and I’m sure that Trump love will play great too.

    ===many voters who don’t know much about her.===

    She’s run statewide… twice… in two years.

    Wonder what her name ID is…

    Ugh.


  57. - Three Dimensional Checkers - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 7:27 pm:

    Funny article. Shouldn’t Carlos Ramirez-Rosa wait until the candidates take a position on Israel before he makes an endorsement?

    Mendoza, Preckwinkle, and Daley are the front runners. Mendoza has name recognition, access to money, and a existing campaign infrastructure. Preckwinkle has a decent political organization even if she is showing a few cracks recent (see above). Daley has access to money. The rest are a step below.


  58. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 7:37 pm:

    –They don’t need to be organized, they have no problem finding and supporting their candidates.–

    You’re clueless. Chicago turnout in the 2016 general election was 71%; in the 2015 mayoral first round it was 34%.


  61. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 18 @ 8:16 am:

    Preckwinkle and Mendoza.

    That’s who have my attention.

    December 10th, the over/under when Bill Daley drops out. The $1 million Daley has, ok, but Daley reminded me of Kennedy in the Governor’s race… the burn rate will tell the story.

    With 16, 18… maybe only 7-9 getting on the ballot, it’s Preckwinkle and Mendoza that have my attention. Been that way since Rahm announced.


  62. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Thursday, Nov 15, 18 @ 8:31 am:

    Please don’t post “no one knows who Mendoza is” type posts after Chicagoans have voted overwhelmingly for her in five successive elections in three years. You are belittling the voters.

    When Rahm announced he wasn’t running, I thought that Mendoza was the only candidate who could give Preckwinkle a run for her money. Now I am not sure she isn’t the front runner.

    Chess isn’t just about who has the strongest pieces on the board. It’s also a battle of position, tempo, style and momentum.

    There is one thing that Mendoza needs to do to win, and if she does that I am not sure she can be stopped.


  63. - Anonymous - Thursday, Nov 15, 18 @ 8:54 am:

    Awful headline to start her campaign. I suspect her persona will be shaped negatively, beyond her control.


  64. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 18 @ 8:55 am:

    ===I suspect her persona will be shaped negatively, beyond her control.===

    lol, you must’ve missed the Mendoza-Munger tilt in 2016…


  65. - Bobby Beagle - Thursday, Nov 15, 18 @ 9:36 am:

    I’ve obviously inflamed some sensibilities with my take.

    She won against Munger, a weak appointee candidate who had recently lost an election. No primary opponent 2018, and then she rides the wave. Not impressed by that track record of statewide elections. Not even close.

    For city clerk, she ran against Patricia Horton. I had to Google her to find out she was a member of the water reclamation board. Once again, not impressed when you have the type of support from the party that she does. That is not a competitive race.

    Preckwinkle gets a lot more local media attention than Mendoza. Preckwinkle was even buzzed about heavily in 2015 as a possible candidate. I have no doubt she has more name recognition.

    McCarthy has topped earlier polls because he attracts a very specific voter. I don’t think that block is going to be pulled apart by any of these additions. I imagine he will remain in the top 3 when the next poll is released with Mendoza in it.

    And finally mock Rosa all you want but a lot of Latino progressives are looking at him as a guide post, for better or for worse. He has influence because of the positions he has taken, especially against Rahm. He is very likely going to be re-elected, so another 4 years with a platform to build his base with.


  66. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 18 @ 9:51 am:

    - Bobby Beagle -, LOL

    (Sigh) oh boy… where to begin.

    ===She won against Munger, a weak appointee candidate who had recently lost an election===

    Chicago Board of Election results… Chicago

    Mendoza 74%… Munger 19%

    In Chicago, weak opponent or not… Mendoza, after the onslaught of “Madigan’s candidate”… won. Handily.

    ===For city clerk, she ran against Patricia Horton. I had to Google her to find out she was a member of the water reclamation board. Once again, not impressed when you have the type of support from the party that she does. That is not a competitive race.===

    As they say in college football… “You can only beat who is on your schedule”… oh, ask Michigan about Appalachian State… still gotta win, no matter the opponent. She won.

    ===Preckwinkle gets a lot more local media attention than Mendoza. Preckwinkle was even buzzed about heavily in 2015 as a possible candidate. I have no doubt she has more name recognition.===

    No doubt? No, we all like facts here. Polling at least is a mathematicial measure. Your opinion is worth the letters typed, nothing more. From Crain’s to PPP, no one has put Mendoza in the matrix.

    ===McCarthy has topped earlier polls because he attracts a very specific voter. I don’t think that block is going to be pulled apart by any of these additions. I imagine he will remain in the top 3 when the next poll is released with Mendoza in it.===

    McCarthy, a Trumpster Republican, could be in the top 3. But the top 2 go in a runoff, and we don’t know where Mendoza falls… yet.

    ===And finally mock Rosa all you want===

    We do. Not ready for anything of a larger significance outside his own thoughts.

    ===but a lot of Latino progressives are looking at him as a guide post, for better or for worse.===

    After the Biss Miss… he’s not a serious person to the discussion of how to understand the building of a coalition.

    ===He is very likely going to be re-elected, so another 4 years with a platform to build his base with.===

    After about 5-6 years of running away from his rollout fiasco, sure, lol


  67. - Bobby Beagle - Thursday, Nov 15, 18 @ 1:32 pm:

    A quick search of Chicago Tribune indicates that since Jan 1 2017, Preckwinkle has been mentioned in 740 articles, and Mendoza has been mentioned in 260. Preckwinkle has about 4X the amount of total articles mentioning her in their database. Her long career is a factor in that difference, but one that only supports my assertion about who has more name recognition.


  68. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 18 @ 1:42 pm:

    ===A quick search of Chicago Tribune…===

    LOL…. LOL….

    How many commercials since 2015 featured Mendoza?

    ===Mendoza’s favorability is driven largely by her popularity in Chicago where almost six in ten voters are familiar (57% familiar) and those who know her like her (41% favorable vs. 16% unfavorable).===

    That was September, 2018… Capitol Fax

    https://bit.ly/2Fm9weR

    So… what else…


  70. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 18 @ 2:00 pm:

    The poll was done July 2018, so if you hit the link, check this out…

    ===1) The poll may be old, but the memo was apparently crafted on September 9th, so the language is deliberately skewed to highlight a potential Chicago mayor’s race. But, if the numbers are close to accurate, she’s pretty well-liked in the city and by liberals and African-Americans. That’s a powerful combo. Notice, however, they didn’t include Latinx voters. But, again, while old, those are not discouraging numbers at all. And since Rauner is so wildly unpopular in the city, she can definitely use her constant fights with him to her advantage if she runs for mayor.===

    Tell me again about… Tribune searches…
