CHICAGO, IL -- Former President Bill Clinton will campaign in
support of former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel's bid for
Chicago mayor.

Emanuel's campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said Sunday that Clinton will be in Chicago in January to appear on Emanuel's behalf. A date and place have not been determined.

Emanuel formally announced he would run for Chicago mayor in
November, just weeks after leaving his post as President Barack
Obama's chief of staff. Before his time in the Obama
administration, Emanuel spent five years as a U.S. congressman for
Illinois.

Emanuel held various positions in the Clinton administration,
including senior policy adviser, director of special projects and
political director.

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley has said he will not seek a seventh
term.
