With just over two weeks until the runoff election, the candidates for Chicago mayor were out Saturday talking with voters.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel attended a job fair before having lunch with a group of seniors in the 37th Ward.

The mayor talked about the need for children to get a good education and highlighted his initiative to allow high school students with a "B" average to attend community college for free.

His challenger Jesus "Chuy" Garcia met with business owners during a gathering at Patel Brothers on West Devon.

He spoke about the need for safe neighborhoods with good schools and thriving businesses. Garcia also spoke about TIF reform.

Garcia will be the guest on "Newsviews," which can be seen during the 9:30 a.m. half hour of ABC7 Eyewitness News Sunday morning.
