Teamsters Endorse Emanuel

2011_1_11_teamsters.jpg On the heels of the Chicago Firefighters Union's endorsement of Gery Chico yesterday, the Teamsters stepped out on their ledge and endorsed Rahm Emanuel for Mayor today.

The endorsement wasn't unexpected; teamsters rank-and-file members in polls favored Emanuel. The question now is will the endorsement mean anything, depending on the result of Emanuel's appeal of his being tossed off the ballot to the Illinois Supreme Court.
