Democrat Lori Lightfoot was elected mayor of Chicago Tuesday, in a landslide victory that represented several historic milestones. Lightfoot, who is openly gay, will be the first black woman to lead the city. A relative outsider to Chicago’s political scene, she interprets her triumph as a "mandate for change" from its people. Lisa Desjardins talks to the mayor-elect about what comes next.
