Defeated Chicago mayoral challenger ‘Chuy’ Garcia: ‘We fought hard’
MSNBC | April 8, 2015
Defeated in his run for Chicago mayor, Jesus “Chuy” García energized Latino voters often written off by campaigns and gave the community an image of their possibilities.
“To all the little boys and girls watching, we didn’t lose today. We tried today.” García said in his concession speech. “We fought hard for what we believed in. You don’t succeed at this or anything unless you try. So, keep trying. Keep standing up for yourself and what you believe in and one day, one of you will be standing here where I am tonight.”
