More Muslim Americans on Ballot in Chicago
VOANews: More Muslim Americans on Ballot in Chicago
Much of the attention on Chicago's local elections February 22 is focused on the race for mayor. Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel and former Senator Carol Moseley Braun lead a list of candidates seeking the office currently held by Mayor Richard Daley. But in those same elections, an increased number of Muslim American candidates also are seeking positions on Chicago's city council. VOA's Kane Farabaugh has more.
