Jamal Simmons, a veteran communications aide in Democratic circles, has been tapped to be Vice President Kamala Harris’ communications director, a White Home official has confirmed.
An announcement is predicted Thursday, in keeping with the official. An official begin date is unclear.
The transfer comes after the highest two aides in Harris’ press and communications operation, Symone Sanders and Ashley Etienne, left the workplace in December. The vp’s workplace has begun retooling after a yr crammed with scrutiny on Harris that neither the White Home or her workplace had been actually ready for, officers have acknowledged.
