Rahm Emanuel uses President Obama White House send-off in new radio ad
Source: Chicago Tribune

Rahm Emanuel's campaign today unveiled a new radio ad in which President Barack Obama says he gave Emanuel no choice but to accept the job as White House chief of staff.

The ad comes a day after the Illinois Supreme Court ruled Emanuel did not give up his Chicago residency when he moved to Washington, D.C. to work for Obama. Emanuel remains on the Feb. 22 ballot as a result.

The spot includes two clips from Emanuel's October White House send-off when he stepped down to run for mayor. It features Obama proclaiming Emanuel "was not allowed to say no" to Obama's request to serve in the administration.

"I needed somebody at my side who I could count on to help get the job done. There was no candidate for the job of Chief of Staff who would meet the bill as well as Rahm Emanuel. And thats why I told him he had no choice in the matter," Obama said at the time.

2. Unlikely, as President Obama is very popular with Democratic voters
