WASHINGTON - Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a former White House aide to US Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, on Friday joined the Ready For Hillary group that is urging former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016.

Emanuel, who also served in the US House of Representatives, will headline two fundraisers for the group in June. His support comes less than a week after Virginia Senator Tim Kaine also backed the effort.

"I've seen firsthand how Hillary has inspired women and men, and girls and boys, here in America and across the globe, and I know that as president, she would continue to move our country forward," Emanuel said in a statement from Ready For Hillary.
