^ Great points LVDW. Rauner has a very good shot at winning this thing.

Sam, in regards to your comments, Crains just had a piece lamenting this very issue. The reality is, we need two viable parties but the GOP just gave up on Chicago a long, long time ago. It's really unfortunate, because Chicago is ruled by whoever can cobble together enough money, and right now it is Rahm. Obviously Fioretti is not going to be a serious challenger.

However, does this mean that we lose Fioretti as an Alderman and keep Rahm as mayor? That's not an altogether bad situation
