CHICAGO (AP) — Former White House chief of staff William Daley has dropped out of the race for Illinois governor.
Spokesman Peter Giangreco confirmed Monday that Daley was ending his bid. The announcement came less than four months after he had announced plans to challenge Gov. Pat Quinn for the Democratic nomination.
The development was first reported by the Chicago Tribune.
Daley had criticized Quinn for his handling of the state's pension crisis and other issues.
Daley is the son and brother of two former Chicago mayors. He's a banker and lawyer who also served as chief of staff for President Barack Obama but had never run for public office.
