Cedric Richmond, senior adviser to President Joe Biden and director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, is resigning from his position Wednesday and will likely begin consulting for the Democratic National Committee heading into the midterm elections.
Richmond represented Louisiana’s 2nd Congressional District prior to joining the administration and served as the chairman of Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign. DNC officials did not confirm whether Richmond plans to take a job with the committee.

Though his planned departure had previously been reported, Richmond announced on Twitter that his last day at the White House would be on Wednesday. He will likely be succeeded in the Office of Public Engagement by the current deputy director, Adrian Saenz.
White House officials did not answer questions about Richmond’s departure by press time.
His departure comes amid a wave of rumored exits by a number of senior administration officials prior to the midterm elections in November.
