Emanuel/Fulop rally cancelled, Booker Campaign says

A Booker for Senate Rally with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop has been cancelled, according to the Booker Campaign.

There is no official word yet back from the campaign but the Chicago Tribune reports this morning that 13 people were shot last night in Chicago’s Back of the Yards Neighborhood, including a three-year old.

Fundraising in San Francisco, Booker was not going to be in attendance at the Fulop rally with the Chicago mayor.

His opponent, former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, had scheduled a press conference to take place across from the event and planned to bash Emanuel for presiding over the crime-riddled midwestern city.
