William Michael “Bill” Daley (born August 9, 1948) is an American lawyer and former banker. He served as the White House Chief of Staff after Rahm Emanuel successfully ran for Mayor of Chicago from 2011 through 2012. 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 2000.
Daley was also a candidate for Governor in the 2014 gubernatorial election for the Democratic primary. On September 16, 2013, Daley made a surprise announcement that he was exiting the race for Illinois Governor due to the personal issues.
After two-term mayor Rahm Emanuel announced he would not seek reelection, it was reported on September 14, 2018, that Daley would run for Mayor of Chicago. He came in third place behind Lori Lightfoot and Toni Preckwinkle.
