Carol Moseley Braun Expected to Announce for Mayor




    Former U.S. senator Carol Moseley Braun is likely to announce her candidacy for mayor next week, according to people close to her.

    Braun, who now owns an organic food company, is currently interested in hearing from the community and believes she needs at least two million dollars in support to run an effective campaign, according to sources. On Sunday, political operative Billy Paige held a meeting with supporters to gauge the feasibility of a campaign.

    Braun is already supported by political activist Gloria Steinem.
