Bill Daley offered a unique excuse Tuesday for why he had abandoned his bid for governor the previous day: He was confident he'd win. And he realized that, at 65, he wasn't prepared for the 5- to 9-year commitment winning the governorship would entail.
Apparently some Illinois Republicans didn't get the memo. Two weeks ago women went to the polls and sent a message that the GOP has a major problem. So now some Republicans are targeting a female GOP leader and no one else.
