Chance the Rapper has donated $400,000 into mayoral candidate Amara Enyia’s electoral campaign.
Back in October, the rapper endorsed Enyia's mayoral bid, but he's also decided to put his money where his mouth is and give her campaign a healthy cash injection.
Chance The Rapper is not the first celebrity to donate cash to Enyia. In October 2018, Kanye West also coughed up an impressive $200,000 donation from Kanye West.
“[The donation] means that we’ll have more flexibility than we’ve had before in our efforts to mobilize, get people engaged and connect with communities that have been disillusioned with politics,” Enyia spokeswoman Camonghne Felix said in a statement per the Chicago Sun.
“It’s the collective power of their voices and votes that will win on Feb. 26 — not the power of money.”
“Chance has been invaluable to the campaign — his ability to capture the spirit of the young vote is critical, and he brings sound perspective and a deep love for Chicago to the table,” she added.
“We’re grateful to have him on board.”
