In Chicago, Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez has conceded the Democratic nomination to challenger Kim Foxx following an activist campaign to oust her over her handling of the Laquan McDonald police shooting. McDonald was shot 16 times in October 2014, but video of the shooting wasn’t released until more than a year later after a judge’s order. The same day, Alvarez announced murder charges against the officer, Jason Van Dyke.
