Mayoral hopeful Willie Wilson is touting support from the faith community in his final full day on the campaign trail.
Wilson was scheduled to hold a 10 a.m. press conference with clergy from across the city at the Chicago Baptist Institute.
The businessman has trailed in the polls throughout the race, despite putting more than $2 million of his own cash into the campaign. He has made his own faith a key part of his message to voters, as the Chicago Tribune noted, starting and ending most public appearances with prayer.
Wilson is one of four candidates seeking to oust Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who holds a large lead heading into Tuesday's vote. If Emanuel fails to secure a 50-percent-plus-one-vote victory, he and the second-place finisher will face off in an April runoff.
