Emanuel Explains His Listening Tour

In a video posted to his new campaign website, former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel talks about the "listening tour" he's undertaking to launch his campaign for mayor of Chicago.


Emanuel says: "As I prepare to run for mayor, I'm going to spend the next few weeks visiting our neighborhoods--at grocery stores, 'L' stops, bowling alleys, and hot dog stands. I'm calling this the 'Tell It Like It Is' tour, because I want to hear from you, in blunt, Chicago terms, what you think about our city, how the next mayor and you can make it better."
