Rahm Opponent Has Cancerous Brain Tumor, Drops Bid For Chicago Mayor
Karen Lewis, the Chicago Teachers Union president who recent polls show beating incumbent Mayor Rahm Emanuel, has dropped out of the Democratic race for mayor next year. Lewis was hospitalized more than a week ago with a serious, mystery illness. The Sun-Times is reporting that doctors at Northwestern Memorial Hospital found a cancerous brain tumor. She had surgery this past week and is beginning a regimen of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
