Awash in the Mainstream: Latino Politics in the 1996 Elections

By Rodolfo O. de la Garza; Louis DeSipio | Go to book overview

Gutiérrez is Puerto Rican. When the district was created, he faced a Mexican American in the Democratic primary and won by a margin of 60 percent to 40 percent. As this is Chicago, ethnicity is just one of the factors that shaped this outcome. Gutiérrez is a machine Democrat; his opponent was a reform Democrat. Although this undoubtedly shaped the outcome, it should not obscure the fact that Puerto Ricans make up a majority of voters in the 4th district.
