Chicago's Emmanuel leaves Obama team to join super PAC
Rahm Emanuel has resigned from Barack Obama's re-election campaign to raise money for superPACS, reports the Wall Street Journal.
"Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a long-time and prodigious fundraiser for Democrats, is leaving his post as co-chairman of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign to help raise big dollar contributions for Priorities USA Action, the pro-Obama super PAC that has been swamped by pro-GOP groups," a campaign official said Wednesday.
Earlier today at an editorial breakfast, Emanuel said he expects Obama to give a "big, visionary" acceptance speech.
He said Clinton's will have “a little more edge” to it.
