Daley Tells Activists to Keep Fighting, Keep Faith

Saturday, 26 Feb 2011 11:48 AM


WASHINGTON (AP) — White House chief of staff Bill Daley is telling Democratic activists to "keep up the fight" and not lose faith despite continued hard times economically.

Daley recalled the days after the November elections, when Republicans won the House and increased their ranks in the Senate. He noted the conventional wisdom that President Barack Obama's agenda had stalled. But by year's end, Obama had reached a deal with Republicans over tax cuts. He also got a new nuclear arms control treaty and the long-stalled repeal of a ban on openly gay military service.

Daley told the activists that their backing has helped the administration be successful. He asked for their continued support, saying "we've got big things to do together."

Daley spoke Saturday in Washington at a Democratic National Committee meeting.
