Black Leaders Plan Boycott of Duckworth Event
Democratic senate candidate, Tammy Duckworth may need to win over critics in her own party, ahead of the general election.
According to the sun-times, several members of the city council and state legislative black caucuses are planning to boycott a unity breakfast where Duckworth is scheduled to speak on Monday.
Some of those who plant to boycott supported Duckworth’s primary opponent, Andrea Zopp.
They say they’re reluctant to support Duckworth because they claim she was “selected by Washington insiders.”
