Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel is in Washington Friday for a private meeting with his former boss.

Emanuel met with President Barack Obama in the morning and will spend the weekend in D.C. with his family. He was Obama's White House chief of staff until he left to run for Chicago mayor.

Emanuel's wife and three children still live in D.C. but plan to return to Chicago at the end of the school year.

A spokesperson for the mayor-elect said, "the president and mayor-elect enjoyed a productive conversation in which a broad range of topics were discussed."
