| 1 Comment

WASHINGTON--White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel--who wants to run for Chicago Mayor when Mayor Daley quits--has more than a million dollars in a political warchest he could use for an election bid.

Upon becoming chief of staff, Emanuel never dissolved his "Friends of Rahm Emanuel" fund created to bankroll his House campaigns and related political activities. As of the last filing--Aprl 15, 2010--Emanuel's fund had $1,175,109.76 in it. Under federal rules, the money could be transferred to a mayoral campaign.
