Okay, so it wasn’t a very good pun… But seriously reports are looking like former U.S. Senator Braun may be emerging as the other major contender for Chicago Mayor. At the very least, she’s stirring things up by hiring two “potentially controversial” political consultants to help out on her campaign. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Braun’s choice to call on Victor Reyes–Daley’s former political enforcer and co-founder of the scandalized Hispanic Democratic Organization–and Mike Noonan–a former House Speaker Michael Madigan political aide–“could allow Braun to climb into the top tier of mayoral candidates.” It’s a risky move, hiring two consultants who may leave a bad taste in the mouths of many voters, but when it all shakes out, both Reyes and Noonan have winning track records and connections to critical communities.
