Garcia endorses Johnson as the next mayor of Chicago.

TGIF, Illinois! As the weekend approaches, let every shamrock bring you joy and good luck. In political news, Rep. Jesus “Chuy” Garcia is endorsing Brandon Johnson for Chicago mayor after losing his own bid last month.

Garcia’s endorsement is a big win for Johnson as they share the same progressive supporters. Both candidates are working to build ground games in areas won by rivals in the first round of voting.

Johnson has also received endorsements from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren on the national scene but Vallas’ team is banking on Chicago aldermen for local support.

A group of Black aldermen came out in support of Vallas including Alds Michelle Harris (8th), Anthony Beale (9th), David Moore (17th), Derrick Curtis (18th), Walter Burnett Jr.(27th) and Emma Mitts(37th). Retired state Senate President Emil Jones has also endorsed Vallas.
