In days with different staff, aides generally kept Trump from doing conservative media interviews because he gets comfortable and says ... things like he says here.

Burke uses biblical parable of lost sheep to describe bringing the City council back into the fold. That makes aldermen a bunch of sheep?

But there will be plenty of opportunity for that today as Mendoza makes her announcement on the same morning that Cook Co. Bd. President Toni Preckwinkle will give a speech to the City Club and the City Council meets to approve the 2019 city budget. - 30-

Mendoza's announcement was carefully controlled. Her statement and video were released late Tuesday under the condition they couldn't be published until this morning. That approach typically aims to limit reporters from gathering reactions from other candidates and opponents.

Mendoza’s relatively quiet mayoral roll-out belies her reputation as a boisterous campaigner. No rally. No speech. No supporters waving signs. She is scheduled to do a series of five minute interviews with reporters today.
