With one day left in his bid to force Mayor Rahm Emanuel into a runoff election, Jesus "Chuy" Garcia isn't slowing down.
The Cook County commissioner has no fewer than 11 events on the public schedule for Monday released by his campaign.
While Garcia trails Emanuel by double digits in recent polls on the five-way race, he'll get the chance to face off one-on-one against the mayor on an April ballot if the incumbent fails to win more than 50 percent of the vote in Tuesday's election.
Garcia hit the pavement early Monday, with a scheduled 6 a.m. meet-and-greet at the 95th and Dan Ryan Red Line station. Other stops on his public schedule include Valois Restaurant in Hyde Park, his Logan Square field office, the campuses of the University of Illinois and DePaul University and two elementary schools. He'll end the day with meet-and-greet events at the Kimball Brown Line stop and the Habetler Bowl in Jefferson Park.
