Spotlight Politics: Texas Gov., Lightfoot Trade Barbs Over Migrant Buses; Aldermanic Exodus Continues

In this week’s edition of Spotlight Politics:

The aldermanic exodus from City Hall gathers pace as two more veteran City Council members say they are calling it quits.

Meanwhile, a relatively new face in Cook C0unty Commissioner Brandon Johnson, and well-known face in former Gov. Pat Quinn, say they’re considering entering the race to be Chicago’s next mayor.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott trade barbs as the conservative Republican buses more migrants to Chicago.

And the Chicago Bears push ahead with plans to move out of the city, unveiling plans for a sprawling sports and entertainment complex in Arlington Heights.

Our politics team of Amanda Vinicky, Paris Schutz and Heather Cherone takes on those stories and more.
