In their second televised debate, the candidates for Chicago mayor hit their stride on the issues that are truly Chicago’s: Crime, pensions, taxation and patronage.

The four challengers to Rahm Emanuel targeted the mayor directly on all of the above.

Questions of policy in the mayor's race were overshadowed for a time today by the issue of race. According to the Chicago Sun-Time, businessman and candidate Willie Wilson told a crowd at an event at the City Club of Chicago held at a River North restaurant that he's accepting of all people saying, "To the whiteys here, I’m letting you know, I ain't prejudiced."

Later, at a press availability Wilson called just before the debate, he denied making the comment.
