CHICAGO - With a reported $0.00, Wednesday morning, Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis filed with the Illinois State Board of Elections to challenge Rahm Emanuel for Chicago mayor in 2015.
Lewis is signed onto the committee as chairman of "Citizens to Elect Karen Lewis as Mayor of Chicago," with Brandon Johnson as treasurer. Tuesday, American Federation of Teachers promised $1 million if she decided to run.
Lewis, who has had an ongoing feud with Emanuel for years, has publicly criticized the mayor for closing schools, lengthening the school days and years, and not dealing with the red-ink teacher pension fund. Filing HERE.
