Labor Secretary Hilda Solis to stump for Rahm Emanuel's Chicago mayoral bid

| No Comments

Labor Secretary Hilda Solis will stump for Chicago mayoral hopeful Rahm Emanuel, the former White House Chief of Staff; she lands in the city after the Nov. 2 mid-term elections. The Emanuel team hopes the Solis visit--and her close relations with unions, especially the influential SEIU---will help Emanuel shore up support in Chicago's labor community. The SEIU could be an influential player in the Chicago mayoral contest and Emanuel knows he has work to do in winning the backing of Chicago labor leaders--especially the SEIU. The Solis visit is designed to help.

Solis will be the first member of the Obama cabinet to campaign for Emanuel.
