Gutierrez to announce he will not run for Chicago mayor
CHICAGO — Longtime Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez will announce today he will not run for Chicago mayor, WGN News confirms.
Gutierrez will make a formal announcement at noon today.
Gutierrez announced in late 2017 that he wouldn’t see re-election to the congressional seat that he’s held since 1992.
64=year-old Gutierrez is a leading member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and has pushed for federal aid to help rebuild Puerto Rico.
Gutierrez says he’ll still spend lots of time in Chicago, including helping with his daughter’s 2019 bid for a Chicago City Council seat and Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s re-election campaign.
