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.)

Maybe Daley need to quit giving family members $80 million dollar contracts and friends all the county jobs & contracts and create a few jobs in Chicago's less well off communities.

I am really trying to figure out how an uncle who lives in the same city with the nephew wouldn't know he got an $80 million dollar contract?. I know if he was my uncle he probably be hitting me up for a MONETARY GIFT!

Is that your reason why you never know anything Richard Daley?
