Top Obama aide to leave White House for 2012 re-election campaign

Another trusted aide to President Obama is moving from the White House to his re-election campaign.

Stephanie Cutter, who is the deputy senior adviser to the president, will leave her position at the end of the year and head to the campaign headquarters in Chicago, a campaign official confirmed Monday.

Cutter’s new title will be deputy campaign manager overseeing press and communications, the official said. Her move was first reported by Politico on Monday.

Cutter is a communications veteran who worked on Obama’s 2008 campaign and has spent time working for first lady Michelle Obama and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. She helped in gaining passage of the president's health care reform act and also in the successful nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court.

Early this year, White House adviser David Axelrod left to return to Chicago where he is advising the campaign. And Jim Messina, who spent two years in the White House as deputy chief of staff for operations, is campaign manager for Obama 2012.
