Moseley Braun gaining on Emanuel in Chicago mayoral race

Rahm Emanuel is in a solid lead in the first public poll for the Chicago mayoral race taken since the field has shrunk to four major contenders: Emanuel, Gery Chico, Carol Moseley Braun and Miguel Del Valle.

The survey, conducted for Chicago Teamsters Joint Council 25 in the upcoming Chicago mayoral race shows former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel far ahead of his rivals–both for the Feb. 22 primary and the April 5 run-off.

Emanuel is the only contender running significant television advertising in the contest, already spending close to $2 million dollars on spots.
