CHICAGO (Reuters) - Two black women will face off in a historic April runoff for Chicago mayor, one a former prosecutor and anti-establishment candidate and the other a career politician, as the third-largest U.S. city struggles with crime and racial divisions. Lori Lightfoot, 56, the former president of an independent civilian body the Chicago Police Board, had 17 percent of the first round vote on Tuesday with 90 percent of precincts counted, results showed. Toni Preckwinkle, 71, Cook County board president and a long-time politician, followed with 16 percent of the vote.
