CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) — Some supporters are using a new poll to set the stage for another possible campaign for mayor by businessman Willie Wilson.
Rags-to-Riches businessman, Wilson placed third, behind Chuy Garcia, in the last mayoral election. And supporter Rev. Ira Acree says a poll by victory research shows the Mayor Rahm Emanuel is vulnerable, which could convince Wilson to run.
Chicago businessman Dr. Willie Wilson bailed out 58 Cook County Jail detainees early in November, including some women who were pregnant and could not make their $50 bond and were in jail awaiting a January court date.
