The White House has reportedly restructured its press office in an attempt to reach voters before the midterm elections.
Anita Dunn is currently interviewing potential candidates for the White House Communications Director position, as Kate Bedingfield prepares for her departure on Friday. NBC News reported that several sources have confirmed this larger shakeup.
This effort is intended to help prepare the government for the midterms season and potential GOP-led investigations, if Republicans win all or part Congress before the 2024 cycle.
Mr. Biden also feels frustrated at the fact that his message doesn’t reach Americans as his approval ratings sink to new lows.
According to NBC, Liz Allen is a contender for the top communication post. Kate Berner, current deputy communications director, and Elizabeth Alexander are the communications directors for Jill Biden.
The interview process focuses on people who have had a relationship with the Bidens in the past and follows a series of departures.
Along with Ms. Bedingfield and two assistant press secretaries, Jen Psaki, the first press secretary of Mr. Biden, and Pili Tobar, the Deputy Communications Director, have both left.
NBC reports that Ms. Dunn also seeks a principal deputy press secretary to replace Karine Jean-Pierre, who resigned in order to be press secretary.
