An endorsement from the Chicago chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) in several key races featured in Tuesday’s election didn’t seem to be enough to propel candidates closer to victory. While incumbents performed well, most DSA-backed challengers in crowded races, where a high-profile political endorsement like DSA’s could help, were unsuccessful.
Four of the five sitting aldermen endorsed by the Chicago DSA chapter won their races outright on Election Day, but just one of five challengers endorsed by the chapter is headed to a runoff election in April after capturing the largest vote share in her race on Tuesday.
