The Road to Election Day

This is it: The conclusion of the historic mayoral runoff election in Chicago has arrived. WBEZ’s political duo Lauren Chooljian and Tony Arnold have been following incumbent Mayor Rahm Emanuel and challenger Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia all around the city leading up to the April 7th election.

On the last full day of campaigning, the candidates spent their time in the parts of the city where they’re expected to do best. Emanuel ate breakfast in Lakeview and Garcia riled up supporters in Pilsen.

Listen to other snapshots of Emanuel and Garcia’s days on the campaign path below.
