COOK COUNTY, Ill. – Congressman Bobby Rush on Thursday announced his choice of who he wants as his successor.
Rush threw his support behind Karin Norigton-Reaves in the race. She is currently on leave from her position as CEO of the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership.
In Thursday’s announcement, Rush emphasized the district’s long history of launching the careers of black political leaders.
Rush adds that Norigton-Reaves is a rising political star and he throws his full support behind her.
“Total commitment,” Rush said.
“I’ve been navigating both sides of the fifth floor for over a decade,” Norigton-Reaves said. “Anyone who can do it can definitely do this.”
Norigton-Reaves has never been elected to office before, but the approval of the outgoing congressman could give her an advantage in what looks to be a crowded race to replace him.
