William Daley, chief of staff for President Obama, will announce his resignation shortly from the White House.
Daley joined the staff in 2011 after Rham Emanuel stepped down to run for Chicago Mayor - he won that election. When Daley was first introduced it seemed as if he would lead the Obama election campaign and see the President through to his 2nd term. Nobody expected him to continue as Chief of Staff beyond the election, but it is quite a shock that he left after only 1 year. President George W. Bush only had 2 different Chief of Staff over 8 years. Obama will now have nominated 3 people for the position in under 4.
Jacob Lew will replace him.
This is a breaking story. We will update as the news comes in.
