In 1991 Danny Davis ran against Richard M. Daley to be Mayor of Chicago. Davis had previously represented the 29th Ward of Chicago before running against Daley, who had been mayor since 1989. Davis lost the election, while Daley continued to be mayor until 2005, making him the longest-serving mayor in Chicago’s history. Afterwards in 1997, Davis was elected to sit in the House of Representatives for Illinois’s 7th district, a position that he continues to hold today.
