"He has certainly done an outstanding job and the president looks forward for him to continue his service."

Card, 57, has held the key position since the start of the Bush administration in January 2001. He was also a close advisor to former president George Bush from 1989 to 1993.

It was Card who, early on Wednesday, announced that Bush's Democratic rival for the White House, John Kerry, could not win the key state of Ohio and with it the presidency. Kerry conceded the race the next day.

Bush said last week that he was considering changes among his top staff and cabinet, without specifying who.
