Carol Moseley Braun poised to jump in Chicago mayoral race

| 3 Comments

WASHINGTON--Former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun (D-Ill.) is poised to jump in the Chicago mayor's race on Monday, scheduled to appear at a press conference of a group organizing a "Carol for Chicago" draft, I am told.

Moseley Braun last week talked to Sun-Times political writer Abdon M. Pallasch about her potential political comeback.


While White House chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and others ponder a run, backers of Moseley Braun--a one-term senator, New Zealand ambassador, Cook County Recorder of Deeds and state representative who runs an organic food company in Chicago--huddled on Sunday with Moseley Braun and her long time advisor, Billie Paige, to map her political comeback under the "Carol for Chicago" banner. Moseley Braun has been out of politics since she ran for president in 2004.
