Karen Lewis said Tuesday that a $1 million pledge of support from the American Federation of Teachers “automatically changes the calculus” of a potential mayoral campaign. But apparently not enough to push the Chicago Teachers Union president any closer to deciding whether or not to actually run. “I want to run things on my time line,” Lewis told union members at Morgan Park’s Beverly Woods Banquet Hall. It was her third “conversation” with Chicagoans. And she’s got 74 more to go.
