State Week: Lightfoot, Preckwinkle Win Chicago Mayoral Primary
A night of surprises as (a few) Chicago voters narrow the field of candidates for mayor: former prosecutor and police reformer Lori Lightfoot gets the most votes, and will face Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle in the April runoff election.
Meanwhile, Chicago hears the unusual sound of a Daley giving a concession speech, what happened to Comptroller Susana Mendoza's rising star, and wasn't Chance and Kanye's support of Amara Enyia going to turn out young voters? Oh, and what of Ald. Ed Burke, whom even changing demographics and a federal indictment could not force into a runoff?
