Who Else Is Running for Mayor of Chicago?

Rahm Emanuel is expected to announce Friday that he's leaving the White House to run for mayor. But who else is running? As one Chicago political consultant put it a few weeks back, "You've got 50 aldermen who wake up every day and see a mayor in the mirror."

Thankfully, Progress Illinois has been keeping an updated list of who's in, who's out, who's rumored, and who's mulling a bid for mayor, with 38 candidates on the table.

See the list here.
