Rahm and Rauner are Fighting
Really. They both swear the tiff is real. They slapped each other repeatedly and threw shoes.
- Over the last six weeks, it was impossible to turn on the TV and not be besieged by political spots in Chicago’s mayor’s race.
But another component of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s fiercely fought re-election campaign appeared elsewhere.
Digital media boosting Emanuel showed up on smartphones, tablets and in online video ads. It specifically targeted digital devices in 38 of the city’s 50 wards.
It targeted younger voters and didn’t really bother with Hispanic wards, guessing those would go for Jesus “Chuy” Garcia anyway.
None of that is very surprising except when you find out this: Republicans paid for it.
Next, they'll be badmouthing each other on Facebook.
