Bill Clinton to Campaign in Chicago for Emanuel

Monday, 17 Jan 2011 02:26 PM


CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago mayoral candidate Rahm Emanuel is getting a high-profile boost from one of his old bosses, former President Bill Clinton.

Clinton is scheduled to appear Tuesday at a rally for Emanuel in Chicago. A former top Clinton aide, Emanuel is one of six candidates vying to replace the retiring Mayor Richard Daley.

Clinton's upcoming visit stirred controversy last month when Congressman Danny Davis, who was then running for mayor, said Clinton could jeopardize his relationship with the black community if he campaigned for Emanuel instead of a black candidate.

Shortly after that, Davis dropped out of the mayor's race and only one major black candidate remains, former U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley Braun.

Clinton is a popular draw on the campaign trail and was in Chicago before the November election.
