New Chicago Mayor, Brandon Johnsons numbers climb in mail in voting
April 10, 2023
The Illinois Republican
With votes still being counted until April 18th it appears Brandon Johnson will take 54% of the vote. Why is that?
Paul Vallas ran the worst campaign I've ever seen. The first 80% of his campaign it's as if he was running for Police Union President or the President of the Chamber of Commerce. The White vote.
He got to the runoff then forgot about the Police and got the Black Lives Matter endorsement.
He flipped on the conservatives he courted for their support to get him past the runoffs.
He turned his back on the Italians and returning the Statues and neglected on all the other races most important the Mexicans who are 20% of the population.
He paid for advertising and bought the Black leaders endorsements but endorsements mean nothing. Just ask Richard Irvin and his 500 elected officials endorsements that delivered him a loss.
Lastly Vallas desperate delivering false hopes such as reperations and witness protection and relocation? WTF
To me both Vallas and Johnson were equally trash. Both are hardened liberal pro-abortion, Trump hating Democrats that are equally bad for the Police and the City of Chicago.
But who am I to express my opinion. At least I never supported any of these losers like the North West Side GOP Club and the Chicago GOP did.
