Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 3/21

 

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, there was record low turnout for the Illinois primary election. State Sen. Kirk Dillard nearly pulls off an upset, but wealthy businessman Bruce Rauner narrowly escapes with the Republican nomination for governor. Jim Oberweis will try again to win a seat on Capitol Hill. Illinois’ jobless rate is trending in the wrong direction. Vacant city lots to go on sale for $1. And in sports, the Blackhawks lose leading scorer Patrick Kane to injury.
