The Chicago Mayoral Primary 2019, a/k/a CLUSTERF*** 2019

Fourteen candidates for mayor, and 16 days until the primary election. While I’m sure there are a fair number of Chicagoans who have made up their minds, for so many, this process is untenable. But it’s all we’ve got.

So much of the problem is about the short window that was created by Rahm Emanuel’s late-in-the-game decision to not seek a third term. So we’re stuck with having to process a lot of information in a relatively short amount of time. This doesn’t quite compare to the large primary fields for president that sometimes crop up (like what we’re seeing for the Democrats for 2020). This is because in a national primary process, as the candidates wind their way through the states, elections, gaffes, and funding winnow the field down into something more manageable. That ain’t happening here.
