Wilson jumped into the 2023 mayoral race on April 11 with a $5 million contribution to himself and a burst of goodwill generated by his gas giveaways.
Three years ago, Wilson won 13 of 18 Black wards, finishing fourth overall with 10.6% of the vote. In the runoff, Lori Lightfoot won all of those wards – and all 50 wards citywide -after Wilson endorsed her over County Board President Toni Preckwinkle.
Wilson said Illinois drivers pay the second highest taxes at the pump in the nation.
