WASHINGTON - In response to a question from the Sun-Times' Lynn Sweet, Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker said Wednesday that an Obama presidential library should be located in Chicago.
“I am very hopeful,” Pritzker said. “I have no inside information on this. But I am very hopeful that the presidential library will be in Chicago. I think it is very important and I know that the leadership in Chicago, both political and lay leadership in Chicago very much would like that.
“It would be a tremendous asset and a great legacy for the city. So I am very hopeful that that will happen.”
