WASHINGTON--Mayor Daley said the Democratic loss of the Senate seat in Massachusetts should be a wake-up call for the Obama White House and Congress, where both chambers are controlled by Democrats.
"Job creation is the key and we heard it yesterday from Massachusetts very strongly," Daley said during a Wednesday press conference at the opening of the winter meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
In a stunning upset, Republican Scott Brown on Tuesday won the senate seat held for some 40 years by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.)
