CHICAGO — The campaign to replace Mayor Richard Daley has unfolded unlike any in Chicago's history, and almost certainly will end with a mayor unlike anyone who's run City Hall before.
Voters in Tuesday's election will cast ballots that for the first time in more than two decades do not have Daley's name on them. They may select the city's first Jewish mayor, Rahm Emanuel. Or the first black woman, former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun. Or the first Hispanic mayor — either former Chicago public schools president Gery Chico or City Clerk Miguel del Valle.
Former White House chief of staff Emanuel has been the front-runner in both polls and fundraising. But a candidate must win 50 percent of the votes plus one vote to avoid a runoff on April 5.
