Daley raised $796,000. He received contributions from former White House chief of staff Erskine Bowles, former General Motors CEO Ed Whitacre and members of Chicago's Pritzker family.

Attorney General Lisa Madigan -- who announced Monday she would not run for governor -- has a $4.3 million war chest.
