Ward Room: The Most Republican Wards in Chicago
This is what happens if I don't follow the various blogs and news sites enough I miss something like this. Edward McClelland who blogs at The Ward Room, a local politics blog published onto the website of our local NBC affiliate, cites 5 wards in Chicago as being the most Republican. Those wards are the 32nd, 41st, 42nd, 43rd, and 45th wards.
Until last year the 41st could claim a Republican Alderman on the city council. The 42nd ward Republican organization often refers to itself as the most dynamic Republican organization in Chicago. The 45th Ward almost elected a Republican - a police lieutenant - to the city council in a run-off last year.
