Progressive Brandon Johnson elected Mayor of Chicago

Brandon Johnson, a progressive union organizer, has defeated Paul Vallas in the race to become the next mayor of Chicago. The current mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot, came in third place in the first round of voting which happened on February 28th. This eliminated her from the competition, and since no one received a majority of the vote, the top two vote-getters, Vallas and Johnson, faced off in this week’s runoff election. Despite Chicago's strict gun laws, gun violence is still prevalent in the city and a top concern among voters. Johnson's plan is not to defund the police but to reform them. He has outlined a sensible plan for policing in Chicago, which may require additional funding to achieve. Johnson's victory is a major achievement for progressives and hopefully, it will have ripple effects across the entire country.
