Mayor Daley visited three Chicago restaurants Saturday while campaigning for Illinois Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama. At Ann Sather, he was joined by Alderman Tom Tunney.

They spoke with voters and explained why they believe Obama is the candidate who can deliver the change they want to see.

Then the mayor went on to La Plena Restaurant in Humboldt Park -- where he was joined by several Latino officials. Congressman Luis Gutierrez called Obama a 'unite'' and Daley agreed.

"I think people are really excited about Barack Obama. He's brought enthusiasm. He's brought a huge interest around the country. People are very proud of what he's accomplished, what he's accomplished in the campaign so far. A lot of people underestimated him in the beginning. And now they see he's a real candidate," said Mayor Daley.
