By R. Francis Rubio     Sep 30, 2010 in Politics
Washington - It's official, President Obama and Rahm Emanuel will announce on Friday that Emanuel will be stepping down as the President's Chief of Staff to run for Mayor of Chicago.
NBC's Savannah Guthrie broke the story early Thursday on msnbc.com writing, " As expected, White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel will step down Friday, to make a bid for Chicago Mayor."
Ms. Guthrie also reported that President Obama's former Senatorial Chief of staff and recent White House senior adviser Peter Rouse will be named as his successor.
Known as the 101st Senator, Rouse is a thirty year veteran of Capital Hill serving as Chief of Staff for former Rep. Dick Durbin of Illinois, and spent 19 years as No.1 for former Senate Democratic Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) before joining then Senator Obama's team in 2004.
