President Barack Obama is giving two of his Chicago-based former chiefs of staff a new task: getting him re-elected.

The Obama campaign was expected to announce Wednesday that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Bill Daley will serve as co-chairs on the president's national campaign.

The Los Angeles-Times newspaper reports Emanuel and Daley have signed up to serve as ambassadors for the president and host events on his behalf while also advising the campaign.
