Lightfoot: ‘It’s Not A Gimme’ I’ll Seek Re-Election

Mayor Lightfoot is leaving open the possibility that she may not run for re-election. The mayor said “it’s not a gimme” that she will seek a second term after dealing with a global pandemic, a massive economic dislocation, and a surge in violence. Lightfoot did say her re-election isn’t a priority for her at this point, adding that she will talk with her family about her future plans on a later date. The mayor has set no timetable for when she would make a decision.
