Jarrett: Obama Thinks Rahm Should Be On Ballot

January 25, 2011

One of the president's top advisers said President Obama believes former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel should qualify for the Chicago mayoral ballot.

Appearing on ABC's "Good Morning America," White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said Pres. Obama believes Rahm meets the residency requirements necessary to appear on the ballot.

"I think that he believes that he is eligible, and that he believes that Rahm will pursue his appeal in the courts," said Jarrett, who, like Obama, is a Chicago native.

On Monday, a state appellate court ruled that Emanuel did not qualify for the ballot, overturning a previous ruling. The ruling threw a once predictable race -- Emanuel has been the clear frontrunner -- into disarray.

Emanuel has filed an appeal to the Illinois Supreme Court, but there is no guarantee they will hear the case. There are also significant time constraints for Emanuel; the state is slated to start printing ballots early next week.
