Do Preckwinkle and Rahm get along? Silence is deafening

SHARE Do Preckwinkle and Rahm get along? Silence is deafening

In this “My Chicago” video, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle talks about a recent meeting she’s had with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Preckwinkle, of course, is often held up as Emanuel’s biggest reelection threat, should she decide to make a run against him. 

“It was a pretty policy-driven, pithy conversation,” the Democratic board president says in this ride-along interview with Mark Bazer. Bazer hosts the new WTTW series, which holds a similar premise as Charlie Stone’s “Morning Commute” where notables are interviewed — and filmed — from the inside of a car. 

Preckwinkle was asked a pretty basic follow-up about whether she and Emanuel get along. 

Watch the uncomfortable silence.
