Announcements Regarding Election Day Coverage

By Chuck Sudo in News on Feb 21, 2011 8:00PM

2010_11_2_proof.jpg Tomorrow is shaping up to be a historic day in Chicago politics. We'll know by the end of the night whether the Countdown to Rahmageddon will come to its anticlimactic end, or if the electorate will be divided enough to force a runoff. We'll almost certainly see runoff elections in some ward races and possibly go to sleep to Alderman-elect Rhymefest. Years from now, we'll be sitting at a bus stop talking to ourselves about the 2011 municipal election.

I'll be here tomorrow night doing real-time updates of the mayoral and ward races from 9-11 p.m. I'll also be making an appearance on WCIU's "You & Me in the Morning" discussing the mayoral election, the last-ditch efforts of the other candidates to force a runoff and Emanuel's chances of winning this thing outright. On Wednesday, we'll be hosting a live post-election chat from 11 a.m. - noon.. I've managed to bring together a panel consisting of our own Kevin Robinson; Better Government Association President and CEO Andy Shaw; Mario Smith, host of the public affairs program "News from the Service Entrance" on the University of Chicago's radio station, WHPK-FM; syndicated columnist Esther Cepeda; and — to keep things lively — 53rd Ward Alderman Ed Bus.

Join us, will you?
