NYTIMES: Rahm Emanuel cleared another hurdle in his bid for mayor of Chicago on Tuesday when a Cook County judge agreed with the city’s election board that his name should appear on the ballot.

The judge, Mark J. Ballard, upheld the election board’s decision that Mr. Emanuel met the one-year residency requirement for mayoral candidates. Several objectors have said that Mr. Emanuel gave up his residency when he worked in Washington as President Obama’s chief of staff until last fall.
