Rahm Emanuel reportedly has given notice that he’s going to Chicago to run for mayor. Emanuel is expected to announce his move on Friday.
The Atlantic’s Mark Ambinder reports:
White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel will have a campaign team ready when, as expected, he announces Friday he's leaving Washington to run for mayor of Chicago. Unless Emanuel changes his mind at the last minute, which associates say is highly unlikely, he will return to Chicago as early as Sunday to begin to collect signatures necessary to put his name on the ballot next Monday.
Like Larry Summers, Emanuel will not be missed.
