Bill Daley drops out of Ill. governor’s race

Bill Daley is dropping out of the race for Illinois governor.

Daley broke the news Monday night to the Chicago Tribune’s Rick Pearson.

Daley’s run lasted less than four months.

He spent that time raising campaign money and criticizing the job performance of Governor Quinn and lawmakers in Springfield.

Daley now says campaigning has been tough on him, and he’s decided that he doesn’t want to be governor anymore.

He says it’s not because of health reasons, a possible scandal, or even the fear of losing.

Daley still says Governor Quinn will lose the general election if he wins the democratic primary.

The only democrat challenging Quinn right now is former CeaseFire Executive Director, Tio Hardiman.
