    Rahm Emanuel wins Chicago mayoral vote

    Chicago (CNN) -- Rahm Emanuel, the former chief of staff to President Barack Obama, won the Chicago mayoral election over five other challengers Tuesday, topping the 50% threshold to avoid a runoff vote, CNN projects.

    With almost 75% of the vote counted, Emanuel had almost 55% of the vote, far outdistancing his rivals.

    Former Chicago School Board head Gery Chico was in second place with 25%, while City Clerk Miguel del Valle had 9% and former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun had more than 8%. The other two candidates both had less than 2%.

    While Tuesday's vote was technically the Democratic primary, there is no Republican contender in the heavily Democratic city, so Emanuel will succeed Richard M. Daley in the top job long associated with the Daley family.

    Daley has been mayor since 1989, and his father held the post from 1955-76, making them the two longest-serving mayors in the city's history.

    Emanuel, 51, started his campaign in November as a relative unknown to many in his native city, despite having served three terms as a congressman, being a key aide to President Bill Clinton and Obama's chief of staff.

    Rahm will do very well for Chicago. This is a great victory for the people of the Windy City.

    Blacks voted for him!

    Jews voted for him!

    He had 10,000 people at his rallies! Not 15K!

    He's crooked and rigged the machines himself!

    He hates white people!

    Zorggist Jew!

    Just wanted to make sure we got all the stupid right wing responses to this out of the way.

    Good for him. He ran a strong campaign and beat his opponent.

    I just figured that once he was able to run, he would win.

    A city that has a population that is 61% minorites and Rahmbeaux comes in promising a free meal ticket. Nope, no surprise that he won.

    No surprise at all. Once the supremes threw out the silly residency challenge, he was a shoo-in.
