Capitol Connection

ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Reporters Rick Pearson and Bill Ruthhart from the Chicago Tribune join Capitol Connection’s Reporters Roundtable to explain what the election of Chicago’s new mayor-elect Lori Lightfoot could mean for the state of Illinois.

Lightfoot will replace Rahm Emanuel as the mayor of the state’s largest city after winning the 2019 election. She will become the first federal prosecutor, first black woman, and first openly gay person to hold the office.
