Top White House staffer David Axelrod indicated Sunday that President Obama will indeed run for re-election in 2012 and early campaign work will begin with the next few months.

Mr. Axelrod said on “Fox News Sunday” that he will soon leave Washington and his work in the administration to return to Mr. Obama’s hometown of Chicago to start on the campaign.

I’ll leave in “early spring to work on the project,” Mr. Axelrod, a White House senior adviser, told Fox host Chris Wallace.

His comments follow some recent speculation about whether Mr. Obama would be the Democrats’ best candidate in 2012, considering the party’s major losses in the midterms and the administration’s failure to improve the lagging U.S. economy and help create more jobs.
