Paul Vallas and Brandon Johnson head to Chicago mayoral runoff

Former Chicago schools CEO Paul Vallas and Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson advanced to an April runoff Tuesday in the nine-way Chicago mayoral contest, bringing to a close the historic and tumultuous reign of Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

It was a stunning reversal from four years ago when Lightfoot won every ward in her 2019 mayoral election and the first time in 40 years an elected Chicago mayor lost reelection.
