Current Mayor Rahm Emanuel has given up…..
The linked piece below has a rundown of some of the people who could be the running….
The election is Feb. 26, 2019 and candidates can’t file their paperwork with the Chicago Board of Elections until Nov. 19. The deadline to gather the required 12,500 signatures to run is Nov. 26 – just three weeks before the November elections.
However, potential candidates have been throwing their hats in the ring for months.
Several well-known names in Emanuel’s political circle are being talked about as possible candidates.
After the announcement, at least two progressive aldermen said they are not ruling out a run, including Ald. Ricardo Munoz (22nd Ward) and Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th Ward).
The big question is who will benefit from big money that would have gone to Emanuel?….
