Cong. Davis drops out of Chicago mayoral race, backs Moseley Braun

January 2, 2011

Former U.S. Senator and Ambassador to New Zealand Carol Moseley Braun begins the new year as the only African-American candidate in the Chicago mayoral race.

On New Year’s Eve, Cong. Danny Davis ended his campaign for mayor and threw his support behind Moseley Braun.    Another black candidate, Rev. James Meeks, ended his campaign earlier in the week and is also backing Moseley-Braun.

Former Obama chief of staff and Cong. Rahm Emanuel, former Richard Daley chief of staff Gary Chico, and Chicago city clerk Miguel Del Valle are vying to succeed the city’s longest-serving mayor.

In meetings with Illinois farmers, Cong. Davis frequently mentions his Arkansas farming background which he again referenced in a Chicago Tribune interview  published Friday.

Moseley Braun also has an agricultural connection as chairman and CEO of Good Food Organics TM, the maker of biodynamic organic food products under the Ambassador Organics label.
