Chicago race heads into final week
CHICAGO | Chicago’s mayoral hopefuls are entering their final full week of campaigning before the election next Tuesday.
The final debate is set Thursday on WLS-TV. The candidates are seeking to replace retiring Mayor Richard Daley.
A recent poll by the Chicago Tribune/WGN-TV shows former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel leading the other three major candidates with 49 percent support. Former Chicago schools President Gery Chico had 19 percent, former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun had 10 percent and City Clerk Miguel del Valle had 8 percent.
The top two vote-getters will advance if no one gets more than 50 percent of the vote.
Romney has lead over home state rival
The Deseret News/KSL poll found that 56 percent of Utahns would cast their ballot for Mr. Romney, while 26 percent would choose Mr. Huntsman. Nine percent said they would vote for neither candidate, and another 9 percent were undecided.
Mr. Huntsman, a former Utah governor, submitted his resignation as U.S. ambassador to China effective April 30 amid speculation he would run for president.
