Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel still has an estimated $2.1 million left in his campaign fund after winning the Chicago mayor’s race.

The campaign put together the figure following questions from reporters after Emanuel said he would lend a hand in some aldermanic runoff races in April.

Spokesman Ben LaBolt said the final tally could still vary a bit. Emanuel started January with $8.3 million on hand for his mayoral bid.

Emanuel will have a new crop of aldermen to work with in the City Council when he takes office in May.

He easily beat five opponents to replace the retiring Mayor Richard Daley, who didn’t seek a seventh term.
