CHICAGO (WKOW) – Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel will be going home early from the Democratic National Convention.
The former chief of staff to President Barack Obama will not be there to watch the president's speech.
A spokeswoman says although Emanuel faces a tough week of contract negotiations between the city's school district and the Chicago Teachers Union, his schedule changed because he was asked to host a party for Obama campaign staffers in Chicago on Thursday.
Emanuel is scheduled to address the convention Tuesday in Charlotte, N.C. He had planned to stay until Friday morning, but will now leave late Wednesday.
