    Rahm Emanuel's bid for mayor will take a swing through a Chicago hearing office this morning when an election official begins hearing challenges to his residency.

    To be sure, Monday marks the first day that the Chicago Board of Elections will begin to hear more than 300 ballot challenges aimed at 19 mayoral and a slew of aldermanic candidates.

    The majority of the challenges, however, focus on knocking Emanuel off the ballot. 

    Hearings begin at 11 a.m. Joseph A. Morris, an attorney who once ran for and lost the Cook County Board President seat.

    He'll hear the challenges and make recommendations to the city elections board about how to proceed with the ballot challenges.
