Runoff Season Enters the Homestretch

Voters head to the polls Tuesday to decide Chicago's first mayoral runoff since the city changed to a nonpartisan election system. They'll also decide who will represent 18 wards in the City Council, and some incumbents could be thrown out. We analyze the mayoral and aldermanic races with a panel of political experts. Joining us are Chicago Sun-Times reporter Laura Washington, Northwestern University assistant professor Tom Ogorzalek, and Chicago Tribune reporter Bill Ruthhart.
