Biss Drops Running Mate Over Israel Policy
(Chicago, IL) — Democratic candidate for Governor Dan Biss is looking for a new running mate after a disagreement over Israel. Biss yesterday dropped his first choice for lieutenant governor, Carlos Ramirez-Rosa, because Ramirez-Rosa wants to boycott Israel. Biss, whose grandparents survived the Holocaust, said he and Ramirez-Rosa couldn’t agree on a policy, so Biss is moving on. A number of progressive groups in Chicago are angry at Biss for dropping Ramirez-Rosa.
