The Chicago Tribune has endorsed Rahm Emanuel in the race for Chicago mayor.

In an editorial released Friday afternoon, the Tribune praised Emanuel for what it called his "tactical shrewdness, ethical conduct and inexhaustible energy." It also said the former congressman and White House chief of staff has an immense network of contacts he can use to lure the best minds available to city government.

Specifically, the Tribune's editorial board said Emanuel's forthrightness about the crisis in city finances is impressive. He is the only candidate to be frank about the immediate need to reform Chicago's pension system and show his willingness to take necessary steps — some of them unpopular — to achieve that goal, the board said.

The Chicago Sun-Times endorsed Emanuel on Jan. 27.
