Rahm Emanuel Won’t Seek Third Term

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) made a stunning announcement that he would not be seeking a third term as mayor of Chicago at a press conference Tuesday.

“This has been the job of a lifetime, but it is not a job for a lifetime,” Emanuel said.

NBC Chicago reported:

Emanuel said he and his wife Amy, who was standing by his side during the announcement, decided to “write another chapter together” as their three children have left for college.

“[Amy] and I look forward to writing the next chapter in our journey together,” an emotional Emanuel said. “I will always be here for the future of this great city. Not as mayor, but in the most important role anyone can play – as a citizen.”

Emanuel had reportedly raised more than $10 million for his reelection campaign.
