President Bill Clinton will appear at a campaign rally with Rahm Emanuel in Chicago next week.
Emanuel, a former Congressman and former chief of staff to President Barack Obama, is running for mayor of Chicago. Emanuel was a senior aide to Clinton when he was president.
The event will be held at the Chicago Cultural Center at 11 a.m. Tuesday. Emanuel’s campaign first announced Clinton would campaign with him in late December but didn’t set a date at that time.
The mayor’s office is open since longtime Mayor Richard Daley announced he wouldn’t run for re-election. Among Emanuel’s opponents are former Sen. Carol Moseley Braun and former Daley Chief of Staff Gery Chico.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
