    The mayor, who is running for a second term on Tuesday's ballot, is scheduled to swing by North Park Village, Admiral by the Lake and Breakers Senior Home for coffee with city seniors Monday morning, according to his campaign.

    Earlier in the day, he tweeted a picture of himself greeting voters at the Loyola Red Line stop.

    Recent polls show Emanuel leading his four challengers by double digits, but still falling short of the 50-percent-plus-one-vote threshold he must hit to avoid an April runoff.
