Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is pushing hard to get the Obama Presidential Library in his city, and even though he isn't as vocal as his midwestern counterpart, New York's mayor is part of the library battle, too. Capital New York reports that Bill de Blasio thinks (obviously) that Columbia University is a "very natural choice" for the library, seeing as Columbia is the president's alma mater. The nod of support comes from a letter dated June 6, 2104, which was recently obtained by Capital.
