Elon Musk may have been among the losers in Chicago’s mayoral election

Chicago voters turned back at the ballot box on Tuesday the notion of a third Mayor Daley, and along with former Obama chief of staff William Daley a former police superintendent endorsed by onetime “America’s mayor” Rudy Giuliani also missed the runoff cut, as Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and former federal prosecutor Lori Lightfoot, who more recently headed the Chicago Police Board, advanced to a second round of voting on April 2.

Another big-name casualty, it seemed, was Tesla’s TSLA, +5.67% Elon Musk.

Musk has pitched, and found an enthusiastic audience in Rahm Emanuel’s City Hall, a billion-dollar scheme to deliver travelers from Chicago’s downtown Loop to O’Hare Airport in 12 minutes as soon as 2022.
