In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, Mayor Emanuel was asked the question:
Q. You’re raising money. I know you can’t afford to look like a lame duck. But, is there a possibility you will run for a third term?
A. Of course there is. . . . It’s a strong likelihood. My intention is to run for a third term.
