Chicago Sun-Times
The scoop from Washington

Rahm Emanuel mixed reviews on Day One of "listening tour." His schedule. UPDATED

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Chicago mayoral hopeful Rahm Emanuel hit 12 Chicago neighborhoods on his first day of campaigning on Monday. He only has one public stop set so far for Tuesday--hitting the West Side over at the Austin Green Line "L" stop at Austin and Lake Street. Now I was told by his campaign that Emanuel would be criss-crossing the city again on Tuesday; maybe he is; the campaign is spooning out information on his whereabouts today.

from the campaign: "Rahm will be making a stop at 12:30 pm today in Bronzeville at the Chicken & Waffle (3947 S. Martin Luther King Drive). "

Emanuel got an earful as he roamed the city from Roseland on the South to Devon Ave. on the north.

The Sun-Times Abdon M. Pallash and Kara Spak reported:

"Rahm Emanuel got a mostly warm reception Monday as he greeted commuters and diners on the Near South Side, Park Manor and Pilsen on the first day of his "listening" tour to succeed Mayor Daley.
"But as the closely guarded secret of where he would be appearing Monday began to leak out, protesters flocked to Izola's restaurant on 79th Street and Nuevo Leon in Pilsen to heckle him. "Get out of our neighborhood," a protester holding a "Dump Quinn in 2010" banner shouted at Emanuel as he left Izola's. Emanuel waved off questions from reporters Monday, saying his purpose was to talk with voters."
