Mayor Richard Daley thinks his brother Bill would be a good candidate for Illinois governor. The Chicago Sun-Times reports Bill Daley has been talking to downstate Democrats about possibly running for governor in 2010.

Tuesday, Mayor Daley was asked if he would like to see his brother go for the job.

"It will be up to him. He's doing very well in the private sector. Of course he was secretary commerce under Bill Clinton. It will be up to him, not to me," Mayor Daley said. "I think Bill would be good at anything he does. He's very dedicated and passionate about what he's done, both in public and private life."

Bill Daley has not announced publicly that he would run for governor in 2010. He considered running in 2002 but later decided not to.
