Lightfoot, who was elected in 2019, came under fire from voters and her eight challengers for her handling of crime in Chicago.

On Tuesday night, Lightfoot conceded after gaining about 17% of the vote, coming in third behind former public schools chief Paul Vallas and Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson, who will face off in a runoff. She was the first elected Chicago mayor to lose reelection since Jane Byrne in 1983.

When it comes to crime, mayors are “the closest to the problem” Adams said Sunday, calling public safety “a prerequisite to prosperity.”

“That is why we’re zero-focused, double-digit decrease in shooters, double-digit decrease in homicides,” Adams said. “We have witnessed this year, particularly in the month of February, all of our index crimes is low, low for the entire year.”
