Rahm Emanuel to resign from White House on Friday

Rahm Emanuel will resign as White House chief of staff on Friday and will begin his campaign for Chicago mayor by meeting with voters in the city on Monday, two sources familiar with Emanuel's plans said.
The two people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not want to pre-empt Emanuel's announcement, said Thursday that he will return to Chicago over the weekend and begin touring neighborhoods on Monday.
"He intends to run for mayor," one of the people told The Associated Press.
