CHICAGO – Jesus "Chuy" Garcia cruised to victory in Illinois's 4th congressional district Tuesday night, replacing Congressman Luis Gutierrez who endorsed him.
Garcia is well-known throughout Chicago after coming in a close second to Rahm Emanuel in the mayor's race.
He began as a community volunteer, became an activist, and has grown into one of the most well-known men in Chicago politics.
Gutierrez was congressman for more than two decades. He announced last November that he would not seek re-election.
Garcia has said that he will not run for Chicago mayor again.
