On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, the Republican candidates for governor spar over the minimum wage, Illinois' budget woes, and whether it's ethical for Bruce Rauner to pour $6 million of his own money into his campaign. Chicago takes center stage in CNN's new documentary series, Chicagoland. Confusion arises among teachers, parents, and Chicago Public Schools over whether students have the right to opt out of taking state-mandated standardized tests. And in sports, Mayor Rahm Emanuel raises eyebrows with his vision of adding 5,000 seats to Soldier Field.
