March (and April) Runoff Madness: Send us your picks as candidates head to the Big Dance
Send us your picks as candidates head to the Big Dance
With a Chicago mayor's race, treasurer's race, and more than a dozen aldermanic contests headed to runoffs, March Madness isn't limited to the NCAA anymore.
As your Saturday sports binges on the couch (and ours) are interrupted with candidate ads before the April 2 election, have some fun with us, by completing our Runoff Madness bracket.
Enter by snapping a picture of your completed printed bracket, or emailing a list of your picks to firstname.lastname@example.org by next Friday, March 15. You'll win some swag, and, possibly, eternal fame among the Chicago political nerd set, too.
Who's expected to be the Cinderella story of this runoff? We'll let you know. We're sending a bracket to Loyola's Sister Jean, too. Have fun.
