Chicago Has Had ENOUGH! Mayoral Election SHOCKER Prompts Twitter Uproar
We did NOT see this coming.
The city of Chicago, Illinois has long maintained a rather ominous existence on our political narrative, as it continues to suffer from the effects of some of the most liberal policies in all of America.
The Windy City is a perpetual punchline, in all honesty, repeatedly lending credence to just about every complaint that Americans have about the left side of the political divide.
Now, after years of ineffective leadership, voters in Chi-Town are making an historic change.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat, lost her re-election bid Monday night, and critics are celebrating the end of her term.
Under Lightfoot, Chicago has seen soaring crime rates, which became a theme of her opponents’ criticism. In 2021, homicides in Chicago rose to their highest numbers in 25 years, outpacing other crime-ridden cities like New York City and Los Angeles.
Throughout her tenure, the mayor has been blasted for her poor relationship with law enforcement, as the city’s police department lost a significant number of officers in recent years amid the rise in crime.
It was a rather significant defeat.
Lightfoot faced challenges from eight other candidates in the mayoral race, but failed to make the runoff after finishing the election in third place.
Lightfoot’s ouster had conservatives beaming.
Gianno Caldwell, a Fox News political analyst whose brother was killed in Chicago last summer, wrote that the Lori Lightfoot “experiment” is “officially over. Thank you, CHICAGO.”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., wrote, “Lori Lightfoot. Crime doesn’t pay.”
Former Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones, who lost his election for the U.S. House in November, exclaimed that the mayor “just got the FOOT!” He added, “Other Democrat mayors with run-away crime in your cities, take note. Even liberals are tired of being unsafe.”
“There is hope for my home city yet,” wrote Jonathan Turley, a criminal defense attorney and Fox News contributor. “Lori Lightfoot is out. The greatest potential improvement for the city since 1900 when the direction of the Chicago river was reversed.”
Chicago’s consistent criminality is undoubtedly a major factor in Lightfoot’s loss, and the results could serve as a warning to other similarly-liberal leaders around the country.
