The Cook County Democratic Party will be meeting at 9:00 a.m. this morning -- moments from now, actually -- in the 7th floor conference room of the 134 N. LaSalle St. building to determine whether to make an endorsement in the Cook County State’s Attorney race for the March Primary.
Last week, the executive committee of the Cook County Democratic Party called for a full meeting of the Central Committee to reconsider slating a candidate for Cook County State’s Attorney. The Committee is made up of the 50 Chicago Ward and 30 Township Committeemen.
The Democratic Party Central Committee previously voted to stay neutral in the State's Attorney's race -- keeping incumbent Anita Alverez at arm's length.
Party leaders may no longer consider neutrality a viable option; it seems reasonable to suppose that this morning's meeting was called because Kim Foxx, former Chief of Staff to Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, now has achieved sufficient support among party leaders to claim the endorsement.
We will know soon enough.
