Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel failed to get more than 50 percent of the vote in Tuesday's election, and must face a run-off against second-place finisher Jesus "Chuy" Garcia in April, according to local media reports.

Emanuel, 55, former chief of staff to President Barack Obama, has already spent millions of dollars in his race for a second term as head of the nation's third-largest city. The run-off election against Garcia, a Cook County commissioner, will be held on April 7.
