Report: Rahm Emanuel May Be Mulling White House Bid

The subject reportedly came up during conversations with Democratic donors.

Chicago Mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel may be harboring Presidential ambitions, according to a report Friday in the Daily Beast.

The subject reportedly came up during conversations with Democratic donors. The Mayor’s office has since stated that Emanuel is not interested.

Prior to joining the White House as Obama’s first Chief of Staff in 2009, Emanuel represented Illinois 5th District for three terms and ultimately became the chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
