* Our quote of the day…
The son of one of Illinois’ most powerful political families said the plans of a daughter of another political dynasty won’t affect his bid for governor.
Bill Daley told the Daily Herald Monday that “what the attorney general does or what she doesn’t do, that’s not going to affect my decision.” However, he acknowledged, “I know people don’t believe that.” [Emphasis added.]
* Was there a meeting between Daley and Speaker Madigan to discuss the race? Brown’s not saying…
Steve Brown, Michael Madigan’s spokesman, would not say whether he and Bill Daley have met to discuss who would be on the Democratic primary ballot. Madigan “makes a practice of not commenting on private meetings,” Brown said.
Daley told the Daily Herald that he’d make a decision by April.
