Lori Lightfoot's Historic Win
Tuesday, April 2, 2019 -
Chicago's voters overwhelmingly elected Lori Lightfoot to lead the Windy City. Nearly three-quarters of the city selected Lightfoot, and it appeared Lightfoot won every Chicago ward. She will serve as not only the first black woman but also the first LGBTQ person to hold the title of Chicago mayor.
"We're seeing a city being reborn. A city where it doesn't matter what color you are, and it certainly doesn't matter how tall you are," Lightfoot told her supporters packed into a crowded Chicago Hilton ballroom. "Where it doesn't matter who you love, just as long as you love with all your heart!"
