This time he is aiming for Illinois governor. Walls was assistant to the late Mayor Harold Washington and National Political Director to Rev. Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH. Walls also served as the state’s primary surrogate for John Kerry in the democrat’s unsuccessful 2004 bid to become U.S. President.
