On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, President Obama in town to vote early after his strong debate showing. Area congressional races between (R) Joe Walsh and (D) Tammy Duckworth, (R) Bob Dold and (D) Brad Schneider, and (R) Judy Biggert and (D) Bill Foster get down, dirty and personal. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. pleads for patience in a robo-call, then heads back to the Mayo clinic. Chicago Aldermen grill Police Superintendent McCarthy on high murder rate and need for more cops. The Florida Marlins wave bye-bye to Ozzie Guillen. NFC Defensive Player of the Week Charles Tillman, and the ferocious Chicago Bears “D” get ready to face lowly Carolina.
