Former CPD Supt. Garry McCarthy to hold fundraiser for potential mayoral run

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Former Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy is planning a campaign fundraiser as he considers a run for mayor of Chicago, he said Monday.

McCarthy said he has scheduled a fundraiser for February 11 at the Irish American Heritage Center.
