The scoop from Washington

Obama endorses Daley. At Daley HQ in Chicago. The Axelrod factor.

| 1 Comment

It's the Axelrod primary.
First Mayor Daley breaks his custom and endorses Sen. Barack Obama for president. Daley usually never endorses in a presidential primary. But Obama is a "native son" and Daley gave Obama the nod.

On Monday, Obama endorsed Daley, who is up for re-election in a February primary with the potential of a March run-off. Obama made the endorsement at Daley's headquarters and seems to have found the mayoral record much improved.

Was either endorsement much of a surprise? No. Daley and Obama share the same high powered media strategist, David Axelrod.

It's just gotta be eating Hillary that Daley finally openly endorses someone and it's Obama.
Loving it. He just has to crush her.
