Rahm Emanuel Within a Sliver of Locking Up the Chicago Mayor's Race

The election for the next mayor of Chicago is today

A poll by the Chicago Tribune shows Rahm Emanuel has 49 percent of the vote. This puts him far ahead of the other candidates.

If he gets 50 percent, Emanuel would win the seat outright in a six-way race for the city’s highest office. If he fails to reach 50%, he will face a runoff on April 5.

Emanuel’s closest competition includes Gery Chico, former Chicago schools president, with 19 percent of the vote, and former US Senator, Carol Moseley Braun, with 10 percent of the vote, the poll showed.
