Kate Bedingfield, a longtime aide of President Joe Biden, is leaving her post within the next few weeks.
A source familiar with Bedingfield’s intentions told Fox News that she’ll depart the White House later this month to spend more time with her young children.
Bedingfield has been a longtime aide to Biden throughout his political career. She will reportedly continue to support the administration in some form.
White House chief of staff Ron Klain lauded her in a statement:
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. She has played a huge role in everything the President has achieved – from his second term as Vice President, through the campaign, and since coming to the White House. 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.
