CHICAGO–Mayoral hopeful Rahm Emanuel is running his campaign from offices in a Chicago landmark, the old Carson Pirie Scott & Company building on State Street, designed by the great architect Louis Sullivan.

Emanuel’s staffers work in very nice space –a modern custom interior–the campaign rented turnkey a sublet that used to house an architectual firm.

Emanuel works from a windowless office, sparsely furnished. Unlike his office as White House chief of staff, it is not loaded with mementoes and pictures of his family.

The Emanuel headquarters has offices for field, fund-raising, special events, policy, politics, press staffs, volunteers and more. Below is Emanuel’s communications chief Ben LaBolt, who he recruited from the White House.
