Chicago aldermanic runoffs are tomorrow!!!

Don't forget for those of you in those wards where there are runoffs. There are runoffs in the 2nd, 3rd, 15th, 16th, 18th, 21st, 24th, 32nd, 35th, 43rd, 49th, and 50th wards. There has been a lot of news as we head into tomorrow.

Aside from the blogs of the 49th ward that race has been relatively quiet. We've heard more from the 2nd, 3rd, 32nd and 43rd wards in the lead up to those runoffs. The 2nd has the most drama especially over a restraining order, the 43rd was over "buying" votes, the 3rd presented a form of arrogance on display, the 32nd is probably not much different that the 49th ward it's mostly about the constituents complaining about their inattentive Alderman (though unlike the 49th ward the prevailing maching there has a prevailing interest in keeping their man in office), and the 50th is over a man who probably should think about retirement and probably should avoid outright playing the nepotism card.

I'm not going to make any predictions here. I intend to follow the results as best as I can. There were shake-up back in February with three Alderman losing their city council seats I think there will be shake-ups but the question will be who. Either way we shall see.
