CHICAGO (AP) — After Chicago Mayor Richard Daley announced he wouldn't seek re-election, enough aldermen, congressmen and others talked about running to field a couple of football teams.

But as the filing deadline nears, the list looks no bigger than a basketball team. And from the outside, it might look as if it's Michael Jordan versus the rest of the Bulls.

Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel is set to announce his candidacy Saturday. With more than $1 million in campaign cash in the bank and national name recognition, many say he is the one to beat.

And his chances look even better after some big names such as Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. and Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart dropped out of the race.
