Rahm Emanuel's Mayoral Run Reinstated by Illinois Supreme Court
Rahm Emanual, former presidential chief of staff and brother of WME co-CEO Ari Emanual, has been reinstated as a candidate for Chicago mayor.
The Illinois Supreme Court on Thursday reversed an Illinois Appeals Court decision that took the politician off the ballot because he did not meet residency requirements. The court sided with earlier findings from the Chicago election board and a Cook County judge stating that Emanual did reside in the city long enough to qualify.
Early voting in the election begins Jan. 31.
