Rahm wins again.

Our esteemed mayor wasn’t technically on the ballot yesterday. In fact, he wasn’t even in the state—he was issuing statements to the press from a skiing vacation out west.

But no one fared better than he did in the Democratic primaries: everyone he endorsed came out on top.

This is either evidence of his expanding might and influence or confirmation that he knows how to pick a winner. In either case, it’s likely to inspire aldermen and legislators to bow down just a little bit lower in Mayor Emanuel’s presence—if this is physically possible.

Try not to smash your face on the floor, guys.
