WASHINGTON–Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, at the White House on Friday said working with Chicago mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel would be “fun.”

Quinn and Emanuel have known each other for years and they share a close friend in common–former White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod, who left the White House a few weeks ago to return to Chicago.

On working with Emanuel, Quinn said,”It should be a lot of fun. I’ve known Rahm Emanuel for 31 years, so I have a lot of experience. He’s a man of great energy and idealism. As mayor of Chicago and I’m governor of Illinois, I think we can do a lot of good things”
