When One Rahm Isn't Enough




    "Fun Friday" in Race for Chicago Mayor

    It's no boat, but it's good enough for Rahm Emanuel.

    Comedian Andy Samberg will join mayoral candidate Emanuel the Merchandise Mart "L" stop in the Loop at 5 p.m. today to meet and greet voters. The location has not yet been announced.

    Samberg, who portrays Emanuel on "Saturday Night Live,"  is in Chicago to headline a closed fundraiser for the candidate tonight at the Paris Club, 59 W. Hubbard St.

    This is the second big-name Emanuel supporter Chicago has seen this week. Bill Clinton was in town Tuesday.
