White House staff shake-up

Robert Gibbs will leave the White House in February, and David Axelrod will return to Chicago to launch Obama’s re-election campaign. 

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs this week became the latest moving piece in a White House reorganization, announcing he would resign in February. The move came as Obama weighs candidates to replace former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who left in October to run for mayor of Chicago. William Daley, a banking executive and brother of Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, is rumored to be a leading candidate for the job, as is acting Chief of Staff Pete Rouse. White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod is set to return home to Chicago to launch Obama’s re-election campaign following the president’s upcoming State of the Union address to Congress.
