Sharing is Caring!

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.
