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.”
