Congressman Bobby Rush uses Biblical analogy to describe Chicago’s issues

Nov 22, 2015

Congressman Bobby Rush says he’s seeking re-election to take on the many challenges facing Chicago’s African-American community. In his re-election announcement Friday, Rush made it biblical.

"Truly I feel like Moses."

Rush says Pharoh’s army was chasing Moses.  He’s being chased by people who want his Congressional seat.  And in front of Moses was the Red Sea, which Rush says is like the issues facing Chicago.

"The Red Sea of police brutality and murder. The Red Sea of indifference of our issues. I intend to go forward into the Red Sea."

Chicago Alderman Howard Brookins says he’s challenging Rush.
