The Chicago NOW PAC is endorsing Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle for mayor of Chicago.
"We are extremely excited to be supporting Toni's candidacy for mayor. She is the only progressive in the mayoral race with a proven track record and vision to unite Chicago," said Kelly Marie Murphy, President of Chicago NOW PAC, in a statement. "Toni has been a lifelong advocate for women, putting women's issues at the heart of her agenda by strengthening health care, addressing gender disparity issues, and helping elect strong women. As mayor, we are confident that Toni will continue to advocate for women's issues and expand protections for women in Chicago."
Should she be elected, Preckwinkle will make history by becoming the first African-American woman to be elected and serve as mayor.
Chicago's mayoral and aldermanic elections will be held Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2019.
