(CNN) - Rahm Emanuel is up with a new campaign website that promises a special announcement from the former chief of staff soon.
Emanuel stepped down Friday as President Barack Obama's chief of staff. He's expected to move back to Chicago and announce a run for mayor.
The new website includes the full text of Obama's speech Friday announcing Emanuel's departure from the White House and details his background, specifically his time representing Chicago in Congress.
"A native of Chicago with three terms representing his North Side district in Congress, Rahm Emanuel is deeply rooted in the life of the city," says the opening line of his online biography.
The new site includes a blog and a section to contribute ideas for the city.
