A Chicago news station has obtained a video of Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza, who’s seeking re-election Tuesday, announcing she’s running for Chicago mayor.
Mendoza’s campaign says the ad was made in preparation for a potential mayoral run and she’s still considering her options.
NBC 5 Chicago reported Friday it had obtained the seconds-long video, which Mendoza says was stolen from her campaign. In the clip, the Democrat says “I’m Susana Mendoza and I’m running for mayor of Chicago” and “I ask you to join me on this journey together.”
Following the release of Susana Mendoza’s Chicago Mayoral campaign video–which just surfaced only days before the November 6 Election Day–Republican candidate for Illinois Comptroller, Darlene Senger, is demanding that Susana Mendoza remove herself from the Comptroller race.
Senger stated the following in response to the news: “This is the height of arrogance and hypocrisy to be running for two offices at the same time.”
Additionally, Senger is also calling for Democrat leaders Mike Madigan and J.B. Pritzker to tell Mendoza that she should step down in light of her blatant attempts to mislead voters by lying about her intentions during the Comptroller race.
