Former White House chief of staff William Daley abruptly dropped out of the race for Illinois governor Monday, signaling he wasn't sure he wanted to devote time to a long, hard campaign followed by at least four years in office.
The decision leaves Gov. Pat Quinn without a prominent challenger in the Democratic primary next March, unless another candidate makes a late entry into the race.
Daley spokesman Peter Giangreco confirmed that the son of late Mayor Richard J. Daley and brother of former Mayor Richard M. Daley was ending what many had believed would be a serious challenge to the incumbent.

Probably saw a scandal getting ready to break... sexting with Weiner.
They found the female interns’ rubber helmets and lobster bibs? Hoo-wee!
Think the Combine told him to get out ?
With a DoJ purged of Holder's and Obama’s appointees, there's a fertile field of corrupt politicians in IL to keep U.S. Attorneys employed and the federal prisons stocked for decades.
Dan Walker is still alive at 91.
Oh, well, he will be going that way soon and he'll still be voting in the Chicago elections. Chicago and Cook County have the most dedicated Donkey voters living in cemeteries. The dead can always be counted on to vote the “correct” way.
Nope, Walker is now the 2nd longest lived Governor in IL history (the 1st was Joseph Fifer, who died just short of 98). Walker is now living in Baja California, Mexico.
I wasn’t contesting that point.
If Princess Lisa jumps in, yes.
If not, then I don't think so. They know Quinn is a weaker GE candidate due to his large unpopularity.
So, just say 'Goodbye, Illinois..." instead..
Daly could not steal the 2000 election. How will he win without cheating.
I thought that Quinn pointedly was *not* a Combiner, and that Daley was the Combine’s candidate? If Madigan gets in, then perhaps it was a Combiner move, but I think that Madigan is staying at AG. The likeliest explanation for Daley dropping out is that Quinn has the goods on him.
The combine is non-partisan, full of Dems and Rinos, so maybe Bruce Rauner is the combine candidate, he is already friendly with obozo’s cohorts. Then they can still steal all the money and blame the Republicans.
I see being a combiner as something of a continuum. With any given politician the question is how much of one are they (or how much do they go along). Quinn was an outsider for most of his career. But since he’s become Governor, I think he’s on board.
But yes I think they wanted Daley, and Hynes was their boy last time.
Democrats are fearful of Quinn’s chances in November.
If Lisa jumps in that means orders came in from her daddy. If not, then Daley probably quit because he’s sitting on scandal. With his experience in politics his given explanation is not very plausible.
The current regime has something on him...
The Combine could’ve decided it’s time to replace their Democrat puppet with a Republican one.
Quinn wasn’t a Combiner, but became one as Governor. It was their “help” that provided the votes to retain him in 2010 (whether those votes were legal is debatable) over non-Combiner Brady.
