(CHICAGO) – A judge has ruled that Rahm Emanuel’s name will be allowed to appear on the ballot for Chicago mayor.
Cook County Judge Mark Ballard on Tuesday upheld a unanimous decision by the Board of Election Commissioners to allow Emanuel to appear on the February 22 ticket.
Opponents, however, say they plan to appeal the ruling despite the decision that Emanuel met the one-year residency requirement to run for mayor. Some argue that he was not a resident of Chicago during his time spent in Washington as President Obama’s chief of staff.
