2012 Presidential Campaign
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is hitting the campaign trail for his friend and former boss, President Barack Obama.
Two of the Republican Party’s biggest stars were shining in Tampa on Wednesday, at the second full day of festivities for the Republican National convention.
For Illinois GOP delegates, getting to the Republican National Convention in Tampa was a pain on Tuesday, but once inside, the delegation’s chairman had a little fun.
Racial undertones, nasty accusations – in just the past few days, the 2012 presidential campaign has taken what appears to be a caustic turn. CBS 2′s Dana Kozlov takes a look at what was said and what it means.
Excuse me, you two princes of politics, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. I’m sorry to bother you, but there is something in America more important than you being elected, and we need to hear from you about it.
Rick Santorum dropped out of the Republican race for president on Tuesday, clearing the way for a showdown between President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney in November. The head of Romney’s campaign in Illinois credited this state as having a big influence in Santorum’s decision to end his bid for the GOP nomination.
U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin suggested Monday that President Barack Obama would do well were Republican candidate Newt Gingrich to continue his strong South Carolina showing and end up with the GOP nomination.
President Barack Obama headed back to Washington today, after a big night on the town to kick off his reelection campaign.
President Obama hopes to translate hometown support into campaign contributions Thursday at three evening fund-raising events.
