Emanuel to appeal ruling on Chicago mayor's race

CHICAGO (AP) -- A lawyer for Rahm Emanuel says the former White House chief of staff will appeal a ruling that says his name can't appear on the ballot for Chicago mayor.

Mike Kasper said on Monday that they will take the case to the Illinois Supreme Court.

Earlier Monday, an Illinois Appeals Court ruled that Emanuel's name can't be on the Feb. 22 ballot because he didn't live in Chicago for a year before the election.
