Rahm Emanuel: Meeting with Mike Quigley today to discuss mayor's race

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel is meeting with Rep. Mike Quigley on Wednesday afternoon; both men are mulling Chicago mayoral runs. Emanuel has been making calls to Chicago political figures as he inches closer to a decision.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, asked about Emanuel said "He's in the process of thinking through what is best for Rahm." Emanuel would have to leave in a few weeks, since petitions start being passed on Nov. 15 and even though he starts with a lot of money--$1.2 million in his warchest--he still would need to put together an organization.

If there is somebody to replace in the White House, said Gibbs, not naming Emanuel, they'll be ready with a replacement.
