Chicago politicos are scrambling to quell reports of a Rahm Emanuel run for the White House, in the hours before President Obama is expected to visit the city to discuss his second-term agenda.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel asked a state court Monday to force Chicago schoolteachers back to work and end a weeklong strike he calls illegal.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel's appeal to the courts to end a six-day Chicago teachers strike set off a new round of recriminations Monday but did not appear to be leading to a quick resolution of the walkout that has left parents hunting for options for 350,000 students.
"He's not running for president," said Sarah Hamilton, a spokeswoman for Mr. Emanuel, in a Chicago Sun-Times report.
But Judge Peter Flynn did not grant the city an immediate hearing, instead scheduling one for Wednesday morning, said Sarah Hamilton, Mr. Emanuel's spokeswoman.
