* Michael Sneed…
Sneed hears Mayor Rahm Emanuel is in a twist over who he wants to be the next governor of Illinois.
Sneed is told:
◆ Rahm is indebted to Dem gubernatorial hopeful Bill Daley, who helped convince his brother, Mayor Richie Daley, to retire, and helped engineer Rahm’s transition into the office.
◆ Rahm is not a big booster of Gov. Pat Quinn winning re-election.
◆ Rahm is this/close to GOP gubernatorial hopeful Bruce Rauner, and their families have been known to spend holiday time together.
◆ Translation: A top source inside the Dem party tells Sneed: “Rahm’s candidate is really Rauner. He’ll never publicly back him. . . he’s a party guy. But, in his heart. . .”
I believe she’s probably right.
* The Question: Do you think Mayor Emanuel will ever endorse either one of those two? Take the poll and then explain your answer in comments, please.
