So this election to select a replacement has almost been counted down like New Year's Eve or the release of the latest tech gadget. Cook County is eager to replace him. But will we?
The primary is a crowded field, but it seems that Chicago Alderman Toni Preckwinkle is the front runner to rid us of Todd. It seems that Da Mayor is backdoor endorsing her too. I try not to listen to polls, but rather who is getting press, endorsements and buzz. I'm not calling her President yet, Todd still has a machine, even a weak one behind him. Last month polls had Dorothy Brown in the lead causing Rep. Davis to endorse her, but I haven't heard much from or about Brown since. But with the election just weeks away I'm sure that Cook County will be hit with a blizzard of ads, fliers, robocalls (which I hate!!!!) and of course email upon email.
Good luck deciding! And remember, get out and vote, no matter who you are voting for.
