Peduto kickoff

Published by James O'Toole on .

The Peduto campaign is inviting its partisans to a kickoff rally Saturday at PFT headquarters on the South Side.

Which renews the question, just how much does a general election for mayor mean in a town where the Democratic nominee is a prohibitive favorite?  The Peduto invite suggests one answer:

"We must not only win in November _ we need to show just how overwhelming and enthusiastic support for Bill is to give him the mandate to make that change.''

But the next few weeks will disclose whether the campaign will spend money and resources to really drum up turnout, or whether they'll be treating November 5 as a done deal.
