Where rahm's PAC money is - and is NOT - going to for Aldermanic Races
Yesterday, DNA info published a piece that says where Mayor Rahm Emanuel's Chicago Forward PAC put their money.
In the 6th ward, NO ONE is getting money. While Ald. Sawyer is part of the Progressive coalition that opposes the Mayor in certain issues (as opposed to another "progressive" coalition that some may deem as fiscally conservative/pro-North side), none of his opponents (Rich Wooten and Brian Garner) seem to be backed by Rahm Emanuel, which seems somewhat unusual, give our ward's track record of voting (i.e. the last election was determined by just 2 votes per precinct).
Howard Brookins of the 21st received the 5th most form the Chicgao Forward PAC, with $43,266 so far. Anthony Beale of the 9th ranked #14 with $26,776 so far.
It would be interesting to see where each ward stands with polling as far as mayor is concerned, and if that will affect the vote for alderman.
