White House May Reshuffle Political Operation

Washington Post: “The White House is especially aware that the president faces a more daunting political task, in part because the outside groups designed to support him have been noticeably ineffective. The goal is to create a political brain trust that is ‘more sustained, more organized, more nuanced.'”

“One option being considered is bringing on an additional senior adviser who could serve as the White House’s top political strategist. Political director Bill Stepien is unlikely to be fired, but Rick Dearborn, a deputy chief of staff whose portfolio also touches on the political operation, is expected to be reassigned to the Commerce Department . . . Recently, Dearborn has met with top Commerce officials about his likely new job.”
