CHICAGO -- WGN projects that Chicago will have four more years of Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
With nearly 70 percent of precincts reporting, Emanuel has 56 percent of the vote compared with 44 percent for Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia in Tuesday's runoff election.
WGN's Jackie Bange reports that Garcia conceded and called Emanuel to congratulate him.
Emanuel, the former White House chief of staff, wasn't able to win an outright majority in February, forcing the runoff.
Emanuel faced a tough bid in a race that hinged on his brusque management style and who'd better manage the serious financial challenges faced by the nation's third-largest city.
Garcia ran a neighborhood-focused campaign backed by unions angry with Emanuel.
Election officials say turnout has been light.
