With nearly two dozen people running for mayor of Chicago, three of the leading candidates were out campaigning Sunday, trying to differentiate themselves from the rest of the field.

Carol Moseley Braun announced her plan for improving the process of getting city contracts to minority and women-owned businesses. She says she'll demand more stringent enforcement of current regulations, and she wants major contractors to assist minority businesses.

Another candidate, Danny Davis, announced the opening of five campaign offices around the city. He said, if he is elected, city hiring will be based on merit, and contracts will be awarded on the basis of best business practices.

Finally, Gery Chico held a town hall meeting to discuss lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. Chico has made it a cornerstone of his campaign to appeal to the city's gay community.
