RFI ED talks mayoral race results on NBC 5

RFI Executive Director Alisa Kaplan was interviewed on NBC 5 Chicago about the mayoral race results and the huge difference in spending between Paul Vallas and Brandon Johnson.

On Johnson’s win, she said “[winning] also depends on how you spend your money and what kind of strategy you use,” Kaplan added. “Outside groups were tremendously important. They helped Brandon Johnson, they were boots on the ground, knocking on doors, talking to voters, getting them to go out to the polls, volunteers, members of the union organizations that supported him. Those turned out to be really pivotal factors in this race.”
