Rahm's seat Election Day field report: Abdon Pallasch at polling places

| No Comments

This is primary day in the race to replace Rahm Emanuel. This is the first of a series of dispatches from Chicago Sun-Times reporters at 5th congressional district candidate election night headquarters and out in the field.

CHICAGO--First voter I interviewed at a Northwest-side polling place this morning said he's voting for, "The guy you guys told me to vote for. I think he'll bring some independence." Though he added, "My wife's probably going to cancel out my vote. She's voting for Fritchey. She'd like to get our sewers fixed."

In my very highly scientific survey at three polling places in what is supposed to be Fritchey/O'Connor/Forys territory, here are the very surprising results: Quigley - 3; Geoghegan - 2; O'Connor -1; Feigenholtz - 1.
