Harris hires new deputy chief of staff in latest staff shakeup

Wilson is scheduled to start May 31 and will replace Michael Fuchs, who announced he was leaving office earlier this year. She joins the office of the Office of Political Strategy and Outreach at the White House, where she is currently Deputy Director. She also served as National Political Director for Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign.

The rental was first reported by Axios.

White House Deputy Chief of Staff Jen O’Malley Dillon in a statement praised Wilson as a “key leader” on Biden’s policy team and said his “leadership, dedication and thoughtfulness will be an asset to the vice-president’s team”.

Harris’s office has seen a long string of departures, most recently including his chief of staff Tina Flournoy. In addition to Flournoy and Fuchs, Harris’ national security adviser Nancy McEldowney has resigned, and communications director Ashley Etienne, chief spokeswoman and senior adviser Symone Sanders and deputy press secretary Sabrina Singh have all resigned. already left his office.

The office has seen particularly high turnover following reports of dysfunction and infighting within the vice president’s office, many of which centered on Flournoy’s leadership — and by extension Harris’ leadership. Senior White House officials and aides to the vice president officially defended Harris and Flournoy and called the reports exaggerated or untrue.

Harris’ new staff – including an almost completely revamped communications team – is expected to come into play this summer and fall as it seeks to bolster its media presence and hit the road ahead of the midterm elections in 2022.
