White House Comms Director Kate Bedingfield Set to Depart At End of July

Several media outlets confirmed on Wednesday that White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield is expected to leave the Biden Administration at end of the month.

Bedingfield has been with President Joe Biden ever since he was Barack Obama’s Vice President, first as his Comms Director and then served as his deputy campaign manager for communications during the 2020 election before becoming the White House Communications Director.

“Without Kate Bedingfield’s talent and tenacity, Donald Trump might still be in the White House, the Rescue Plan and the Infrastructure Law might still be unrealized goals, and Kentaji Brown Jackson might not be sitting on the Supreme Court,” White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said in a statement. “Her strategic acumen, intense devotion to the President’s agenda, and fierce work on his behalf are unmatched. She will continue to remain a critical player in moving the Biden agenda forward from the outside.”

The Biden White House has seen some recent turnover in its staff, with Press Secretary Jen Psaki departing and Karine Jean-Pierre assuming her podium. Former Deputy White House communications director Pili Tobar and a number of lower-level press aides have also departed the White House in recent months.

Kate Bedingfield’s likely replacement is Liz Allen, another longtime Joe Biden loyalist who worked for him when he was Vice President. Allen was also Deputy Communications Director for former President Barack Obama and worked with Kamala Harris after Harris was chosen to be Biden’s Vice-Presidential running mate. She is currently working at the State Department.
