Mayoral candidate Jesús “Chuy” García is hoping that an influx of support from black leaders will put him ahead of opponent Mayor Rahm Emanuel in the April 7 runoff election for Chicago mayor.
Willie Wilson was scheduled to appear on tonight’s broadcast of Chicago Tonight, but he cancelled his appearance. Wilson told us that he could not come on the show because he was meeting with both mayoral candidates.
Chicago Tonight hosted a live candidate forum with contenders for the office of Mayor of Chicago, including the incumbent Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Ald. Bob Fioretti, Cook County Commissioner Jesús "Chuy" García, and businessman Willie Wilson.
