Daley to leave White House after election

White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley said Tuesday he will leave his job after the 2012 election.

“I made a commitment with the president through his re-election, which I am confident he will do,” Mr. Daley told NBC affiliate WMAQ-TV in Chicago. “Then my wife and I will be back in Chicago.”

President Obama chose Mr. Daley to replace Rahm Emanuel in January; Mr. Emanuel is now mayor of Chicago.

“It’s been a great honor,” Mr. Daley said. “The president’s a terrific guy to work with and work for. And he’s really a good person.”
