• Reuters

Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel got a victory in his run for Chicago mayor on Thursday, with a decision by an election board that he meets the residency requirement to be on the February ballot.

Emanuel told reporters at a downtown restaurant that he was "obviously very pleased" with the board vote.

"It reminds I think everybody what the priorities are facing the city, which is about safer streets, strong schools and stable city finances," Emanuel said.
