On February 24, underdog candidate Jesus “Chuy” Garcia was one of four challengers trying to unseat Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel. He didn’t win the election, but he won enough votes to be the challenger in a runoff election.
Garcia’s road to the runoff began in Chicago’s Latino community. As a young immigrant, Garcia took a stab at his first grassroots campaign to entice change in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood. Garcia will face off with Emanuel on April 7 in the first runoff election in Chicago’s history.
