Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 3/27

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, two Aurora men are arrested for allegedly plotting to attack an Illinois military base. Mayoral candidates face off in a televised debate as the mayor’s race enters the homestretch. The Chicago Teachers Union issues a list of demands, Jesse Jackson Jr. enters a halfway house, and Gov. Bruce Rauner and Democrats find a short-term budget fix. One quarter of Chicago homes are underwater. And in sports, spring training winds down as NBA and NHL playoffs approach.
