This latest endorsement comes as Lightfoot continues to earn support from others like the Illinois Nurses Association PAC, Congressman Mike Quigley and Congressman Chuy García.

“She’ll make sure that no matter the neighborhood you call home, who you love or pray to, and whether or not you were born here or came here, that you’re given every opportunity to thrive as part of Chicago’s future."— Lori Lightfoot (@LightfootForChi) March 23, 2019
