25th Ward candidates Solis and Morfin debate before the runoff election

Chicago is just two weeks away from another election. Voters in 14 Wards across the city will chose their aldermen in the April 5 runoff races. The 25th Ward is one of those 14. It's on the southwest side, and includes the Pilsen, Chinatown, University Village and Tri-Taylor neighborhoods.

The candidates are incumbent Alderman Danny Solis and community activist Cuahetemoc Morfin. The two have met before. Morfin almost forced Solis into a runoff in the 2007 municipal election. In November's election, Solis won 49 percent of the vote and Morfin 28 percent.

Both men spoke with host Alison Cuddy about their ideas for running the 25th Ward.
