Rahm Emanuel’s Office: Fundraising Is On Hold, Not Cancelled

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel canceled a fundraiser for a super PAC supporting House Democrats this week to deal with the teachers strike, but that doesn’t mean he’s stepped down from his new position helping to raise cash for Priorities USA, a super PAC supporting President Obama. 

“Everything is on hold right now,” Emanuel’s political spokesman, Tom Bowen, told TPM, who confirmed that reports that Emanuel had left fundraising work entirely were innacurate.
