William J. Kelly Launches Bid for Chicago Mayor


An unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination for Illinois comptroller in 2010, William J. Kelly has previously announced campaigns for Chicago mayor (2015) and governor (2018) without actually appearing on the ballot.

Kelly hosts “The Citizen Kelly Show” late nights on WCGO-AM, based in Evanston. He is also the founder of an Emmy Award-winning TV production company, RevDigital, and is a contributor to the American Spectator and The Washington Times, among other publications.

Kelly joins host Phil Ponce in discussion.
