Aldermanic runoff candidates with no incumbent
Take a look at the names, faces, and major donors of the aldermanic candidates in runoff races with no incumbent in our infographic below.

In Chicago’s municipal elections this year, seven of 50 sitting aldermen did not run for re-election due to either redistricting or because the alderman was retiring.  Five of the seven seats that were up for grabs resulted in runoff races.  In the infographic below, we profile the two candidates still in the race in each of these wards, how much money they have raised since February 24, and who their largest contributor is.

For a full breakdown of all large donations ($1,000 or more) made to the aldermanic runoff candidates’ campaign funds, see our searchable database for information on all major contributions.  And, to see facts and figures on the 13 aldermanic races involving incumbents, see this infographic we published last week.  Lastly, for insight on how unions and PACs (and their money) are divided this election season, don’t miss our database reporter Jonah Newman’s analysis.
