I just don’t think these two men are able to mobilize like they once were. Heck, Bobby Rush nearly missed making the ballot not too long ago. It’s hard to believe that these two will move the needle in favor of Kennedy.
Also, if Chris Kennedy is coordinating campaign efforts with Richard Boykin - who also endorsed him - and who is being challenged by Brandon Johnson of CTU, it would go a long way towards winning the West Side. As Boykin showed in his 2014 race, he is a master campaigner.
