Durbin Statement On Mayor Rahm Emanuel's Decision To Not Seek Re-Election

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement regarding Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s decision to not seek re-election: 

Rahm's record of public service spans Congress, the White House, and the fifth floor of City Hall in Chicago.  I have worked closely with him at every level of his public career.  I always knew a call from Rahm was an invitation to join him in a bold, ambitious effort to make life better for those he served.  It has been my honor to join him in these great ventures.  Rahm has left his mark and I wish him and Amy the best in the days ahead.
