Residency Won’t Rule Out Candidates
(Chicago Tribune) — Rahm Emanuel will face criticism that he’s an outsider if he decides to run for mayor of Chicago after two years as White House chief of staff, but city election law doesn’t hold it against him.
He’s not the only high-profile politician whose Chicago roots could be a point of contention as potential candidates decide whether to run for mayor. U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and his wife, Ald. Sandi Jackson, who are both considering mayoral bids, spend a significant amount of their time inWashington as well.
