After Trump Rally In Chicago Is Cancelled, An Edgier 2016 Race

Over the weekend, Donald Trump rallies in Chicago, Dayton and Kansas City, Missouri saw various types of unrest and sparked strong words from supporters, activists and Trump's fellow presidential candidates. 

WBEZ’s Tony Arnold joined us to explain what happened leading up to Trump’s cancelled rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago and describes the scene. 

Chicago Magazine’s Carol Felsenthal analyzed how the heightened rhetoric and flashes of violence we’ve seen in recent days could affect the 2016 race going forward. 

Morning Shift also took the pulse of listeners on the question: How do you think the events of the weekend have shifted the race?
