    UPDATE: A spokesman for Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's campaign reached out to NBCChicago saying the Crain's report was incorrect and the Amy Rule speech has been postponed. It was not immediately clear when the speech would be rescheduled. 

    Chicago's first lady this week will reportedly make a speech for her husband's reelection campaign.

    Amy Rule was scheduled to address residents of Friedman Place on Friday, Crain's Chicago Business reported.

    The Northwest Side facility offers affordable housing and social services to residents who are blind or visually impaired.

    Rule typically stays out of the spotlight, instead focusing on the three children she shares with Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

    Emanuel failed to secure a second term during the Feb. 24 election and is in a runoff campaign with his nearest challenger, Cook County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia.
