Jennifer Palmieri will leave her job as White House communications director for a comparable role with Hillary Clinton’s expected presidential campaign, the Wall Street Journal reports.
“The move locks in place another top position on Mrs. Clinton’s campaign team, should she choose to run. Ms. Palmieri has connections to both the Obama and Clinton worlds, having worked in Bill Clinton ’s White House in the 1990s. She is also close to another figure who bridges both the Obama and Clinton worlds: John Podesta.”
New York Times: “Given the transformed media landscape, Ms. Palmieri is expected to have a team that will include other senior press aides. Brian Fallon, currently at the Justice Department, is expected to potentially handle rapid response, and Karen Finney, a longtime Democratic operative and MSNBC regular, could serve as a press secretary.”Save to Favorites
