Chicago Election Results Show Emanuel Winner In Mayor's Race
The computer-tabulated election results in Cook County show Rahm Emanuel has been re-elected to a second term as Chicago's mayor over Cook Co. Commissioner Chuy Garcia. Emanuel received just under 56% of the vote to Garcia's 44% share of the vote. Emanuel, whose poll numbers have consistently showed his approval rating well below 50%, managed to get only 45% of the vote in the February primary election, forcing him into a run-off election with Garcia, who captured 34% of the vote in the crowded primary election. I'm sure Chicagoans really wanted four more years of Emanuel and nothing nefarious occurred in the tabulation of votes.
