William Michael “Bill” Daley (born August 9, 1948) is an American lawyer and former banker.[1] He served as the White House Chief of Staff after Rahm Emanuel successfuly ran for Mayor of Chicago from 2011 through 2012.[2] He is the son of Richard J. Daley and brother of Richard M. Daley (who's successor was Emanuel as Mayor of Chicago). He also was the United States Secretary of Commerce from 1997 through 1997.

Daley was born on August 9, 1948 in Chicago, Illinois. He studied at Loyola University Chicago and at John Marshall Law School. He is married to Bernadette Keller.

On September 16th, Daley made a surprise announcement that he was exiting the race for Illinois Governor due to the personal hardships inherent in running a campaign for elective office.[3]
