Biden names 2024 campaign manager
WASHINGTON – Susan Rice, one of President Biden’s most trusted allies and his top domestic policy official, will leave the administration next month in what will mark one of the most high-profile departures from his administration, the White House announced Monday.
Since the start of Mr. Biden’s presidency, Rice has led the Domestic Policy Council, a powerful White House office overseeing issues ranging from health care and gun control initiatives to US immigration and border policy.
Rice served as national security adviser and ambassador to the United Nations under former President Barack Obama. In a statement, Mr. Biden praised Rice’s tenure, highlighting her important role in advancing his agenda.

“As the only person to serve as both national security adviser and domestic policy adviser, Susan’s record of public service makes history,” the president said. “But what distinguishes him as a leader and colleague is the seriousness with which he takes his role and the urgency and tenacity he brings, his bias for action and results, and the integrity, humility and humor with which he does so.”
A White House official said Rice is looking forward to spending more time with his family, noting that he initially committed to serving in the administration for two years.
