Rahm Emanuel has $2.1 million left in his political warchest

| No Comments

Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel has an estimated $2.1 million left in his political warchest, spokesman Ben LaBolt said on Friday--a formidable pot of money to spread around the April aldermanic run-off campaigns, fund messaging drives for his mayoralty and to keep rivals at bay.

This from LaBolt: "In response to a request from many of you, I wanted to provide an estimate of cash-on-hand remaining in the campaign fund. It's only an estimate because we have subtracted what we know are the outstanding expenditures, but there could be something we are missing and the final report with all of the expenditures is not immediately due.

The estimate of cash-on-hand remaining is $2.1 million -- and again I caution you that the final number could be slightly different when all is said and done."
