CHICAGO (AP) — This is it for the candidates hoping to replace the retiring Mayor Richard Daley.

Monday is the last full day of campaigning before voters decide Tuesday who will be Chicago’s first new mayor in 22 years because Daley didn’t seek a seventh term.

The four major candidates are former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, former Chicago schools president Gery Chico, former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun and City Clerk Miguel del Valle. Two other lesser-known candidates — William “Dock” Walls and Patricia Van Pelt-Watkins — are also running.

The four major candidates spent the weekend looking for every last vote they could find. Emanuel and Chico visited the South Side mega church run by state Sen. James Meeks while Braun and del Valle visited other churches.
