I had never heard the word before so looked it up. It seems originally to have come from rigging ( 'dar um jeitinho nas ') horse races. It means something like easily ( com só um pequeno empurrão) winning a race. Also interesting was I saw one of Dalé 's 'slang' words in the text. So have a look:

O'Connor, a former three-term city councilman who nearly won the nomination four years ago, virtually clinched the job. That's because a Republican has not been elected mayor in more than 70 years.
