The city of Chicago is bracing for the election night rally Barack Obama is planning in Grant Park with Mayor Daley expecting a million or more people at the lakeshore event.
"It's gonna be surprising. There's gonna be a lot of people who will want to come down and celebrate. We hope it's a million or more. It would be wonderful." Last week, Daley put a $2 million price tag on the cost of city services tied to the Obama rally and said the cash-flush Obama campaign had agreed to cover every penny because of Chicago's "financial crisis." The mayor also portrayed the Grant Park rally as a logistical challenge that would force the city to close Grant Park up to eight hours in advance, block streets, secure the CTA and "realign gas mains."
