Mayor Daley wins re-election in Chicago

Chicago's mayor-for-life, Richard M. Daley, was easily re-elected for a sixth term yesterday. Even a year ago he was expected to win--when the Hired Truck Scandal was dominating the local headlines--but a couple of potential challengers, Congressmen Jesse Jackson Jr. and Luis Gutierrez, decided to remain in the House after the Democratic takeover.

Daley ended up with about 70 percent of the vote, and he won all fifty of the city's wards.
