Laura Washington: Chuy now a progressive on the national stage

What’s next for Jesus “Chuy” Garcia?  After his 56 to 44 percent loss to Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the Garcia campaign went dark.  That’s understandable.  It was a brutal campaign.
On Wednesday Garcia will lead the “Fight for 15” rally for a $15/hour minimum wage at the University of Illinois, says spokesperson Monica Trevino. Meanwhile, “he’s reflecting and spending time with his family.” He’s “analyzing the campaign.”
