R. Emmett Tyrrell Mulls Rahm Challenge in Chicago

Sunday, 03 Oct 2010 09:34 PM

Responding to the possibility of a “Mayor Emanuel” in Chicago, The New York Sun touted American Spectator editor R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. as a conservative alternative to President Obama’s former chief of staff in an editorial Sunday. The paper said that speculation was now rife that Tyrrell would challenge Rahm Emanuel in an effort reminiscent of another great conservative writer, William F. Buckley, who once ran for mayor of New York.

Emanuel formally announced his candidacy in a web video Sunday. The paper suggested that Tyrrell would make his announcement Monday night on Sean Hannity’s show on the Fox News Network.

And Mr. Tyrrell will be able to assert that he himself is blameless in the mortgage crisis, having never served on the board of Freddie Mac.”
