Former Senator to run for Chicago mayor

Chicago, Illinois (CNN) - The first black woman to win a seat in the U.S. Senate has thrown her political hat back into the ring, beating Monday's deadline for hopeful candidates to turn in the required signatures needed to be placed on the mayoral ballot here.

"I just want to serve," Carol Moseley Braun said Saturday as she announced her intent to run for mayor of Chicago before a crowd of supporters.

  2. Randolph Carter, I'm no expert, but...

    Ruh Roh! Here comes more union bashing from people whose median income hasn't gone up in 30 years. Have a nice day!

    P.S. Actually, Snow, Maxine is pretty darn smart.

    I love it when the FAR RIGHT call people DUMB but NEVER go into details as to WHY? @SNOW, just because she is Black, you compare her with Barbara Waters??? And I guess you consider them both DUMB? Why?

    Jeez! I don't know enough about Carol Moseley Braun so I will not comment. I can say, however, Good Luck!!!

    America – instead of making DUMB STATEMENTS – let's concentrate of Moving America Forward with our current leader, President Obama!!

    Gee, aren't there any competent candiates in Chicago? One only has to examine Braun's record as senator to see she isn't qualified to make change for a dollar!
