Rahm Emanuel Cleared to Run for Mayor of Chicago

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Rahm Emanuel is back on the Chicago mayoral ballot.

The Illinois Supreme Court unanimously decided on Thursday to reverse a lower court ruling that said the Former White House Chief of Staff did not meet the state's one year residency requirement, according to The Associated Press. Emanuel has been fighting to get his name on the ballot. He appealed the lower court's decision earlier this week.

Emanuel left his job at the White House this past fall, to run for mayor of his hometown. The election is February 22.
