WASHINGTON (AP) - Top Obama administration adviser David Axelrod says he will leave the White House in the first half of next year to begin the president's re-election campaign.

Axelrod told "Fox News Sunday" that he would return to Chicago in "late winter, early spring" to start work.

The 55-year-old Axelrod is a longtime friend of President Barack Obama, and served as his chief strategist for the 2008 campaign.
