CHICAGO — Attorneys for former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are focused on showing that he always planned to come back to Chicago after he finished working for President Barack Obama.

A Chicago Board of Election Commissioners hearing on residency challenges to Emanuel's mayoral bid enters its third day Thursday.

More than two dozen opponents say he does not have a legal right to run because he lived for nearly two years in Washington.

Wednesday's testimony wrapped up with a longtime friend of Emanuel's talking about how long he planned to work for Obama, who was elected in 2008.

Communications consultant Marj Halperin said Emanuel made clear when he took the job that his move to Washington wasn't permanent because he and his wife were not selling their Chicago home.
