Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx announces re-election campaign for 2020 by ABC News

CHICAGO (WLS) — Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has announced her plan to run for re-election. Tuesday Foxx released a digital ad touting her progress on gun prosecutions and criminal justice reform.

The Democratic candidate overwhelmingly won the 2016 race against her opponent, Republican Christopher Pfannkuche, on the promise of “fixing a system that we know needs repair.”

Foxx’s predecessor, Anita Alvarez lost her bid for reelection following widespread criticism over how she handled the 2014 Laquan McDonald police shooting.
