Since 2003, our 5th Congressional District in Illinois has been well represented in Washington by Rahm Emanuel. Rahm is a great advocate for veterans, the arts and educational institutions in the district including Wright College and the Chicago Academy.

In addition to his work representing the district, Rahm has been a tireless advocate for Democratic Congressional Candidates. The take-over of the House of Representatives by the Democrats on Tuesday is higlighted in a special section in the Sunday Chicago Tribune entitled “The House that Rahm Built” in recognition of his hard work and dedication. As noted in the article, Rahm finished the campaign on Monday, by sending for delivery on Election Day, 70 Eli’s Cheesecakes that went to candidates from Nevada to Connecticut as a
thank you for their incredible effort during the campaign.

At Eli’s, we have always been grateful to have played a small role in American history because of then Governor and Mrs. Clinton’s visit to
our bakery in March of 1992 on the eve of the Illinois primary. We can now share that our cheesecake played a role in the Democratic take-over of Congress in 2006.
