CHICAGO — Toni Preckwinkle dropped her challenge to Susana Mendoza’s mayoral ballot petitions Wednesday.

Preckwinkle had claimed 14,000 signatures were not valid on Mendoza’s nominating petitions.

Earlier Wednesday, Mendoza’s campaign released a statement saying,  “based on the current status of the records exam, their count shows more than 13,000 valid ballot petition signatures, with almost half of the challenged signatures still left to review. The number puts Mendoza far above the 12,500 required signatures to appear on the February ballot.”
Preckwinkle dropped the challenge and released her own statement saying,  “Being Mayor of Chicago is a tough job. That’s why there are high standards for getting on the ballot. While the campaign is dropping its challenge to Susana Mendoza’s petitions, Chicago voters should know that she just barely met the bar to be included on the ballot. This fits a pattern of Mendoza being unprepared to tackle the critical duties of the office. Since getting into this race, Mendoza has repeatedly dodged questions and failed to bring any new ideas.”

Chicago’s mayoral election is on February 26th.
