Spotlight Politics: Lightfoot’s Progressive Pitch, Cash Flows into Race for Governor

In this week’s edition of Spotlight Politics:

Mayor Lori Lightfoot uses her 2023 budget to show off progressive policies, despite being at odds with Chicago’s progressive political community.

The number of migrants arriving from Texas to Chicago is about to reach 3,000, and the City Council Latino Caucus is calling on Lightfoot to declare a state of emergency.

Big cash is flowing into the governor race from GOP megadonor Richard Uihlein.

Plus, endorsements are still rolling in for the November election—with U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger endorsing out-of-state candidates and the Chicago Tribune endorsing Gov. J.B. Pritzker.

Our politics team of Amanda Vinicky, Paris Schutz and Heather Cherone takes on those stories and more.
