Keeping Up With the Candidates



    After months of campaign speeches, television ads and continued, expected controversy, Election Day is nearly here.

    Candidates packed their schedules over the weekend and continue to maneuver around town Monday, anticipating Tuesday's big day.

    Where can you find Miguel del Valle, Rahm Emanuel, Gery Chico and Carol Moseley Braun on Election Day? According to campaign spokespeople, here's where they're expected to watch the votes roll in:

    Del Valle: Revolution Brewing, 2323 N. Milwaukee Ave., a Logan Square brewpub.

    Even before he would get a chance to draft his own budget as mayor, candidate Rahm Emanuel says he would get the ball rolling with $75 million worth of changes to Richard Daley's final budget to help shore up a massive deficit.
