The Capitol Fax Blog reports that Bill Daley, the former U.S. Commerce secretary and brother of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, is considering a run for governor in 2010.
The Chicago Sun-Times follows up:
On Tuesday, the mayor laughed out loud when asked whether he would like to see his younger brother in the governor's mansion.
"I don't know. It will be up to him if he makes that decision. He's doing very well in the private sector. He was secretary of commerce under Bill Clinton. That would be up to him -- not to me," the mayor said.
Meanwhile, a friend from Illinois tells me that people are already speculating about who Gov. Rod Blagojevich might appoint to the U.S. Senate seat Barack Obama would vacate if elected president. She says some think the governor will appoint himself, others guess Attorney General Lisa Madigan, which would remover her as a gubernatorial rival.
