Additional Information: 

"We did it for Harold, we can do it for Carol" was the slogan used during Carol Moseley-Braun's 1998 reelection campaign for the United States Senate. The slogan called back to Harold Washington, the first African-American Mayor of Chicago, since Moseley-Braun was the first African-American woman voted into the United States Senate in 1992. Although Moseley-Braun had strong support from Chicago and from former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, she was not reelected to the Senate in 1998.
