I am forever grateful to @FLOTUS for taking a chance on me nearly three years ago, bringing me on this journey with her around the country and the world, and the privilege of being a small part of the history that she and @POTUS made.— Michael LaRosa (@MichaelLaRosa46) July 26, 2022
A White House official told CNN that the hunt is on for La Rosa’s replacement, with candidates “currently being considered,” the outlet reported. Candidates for the job are being considered, the outlet reported. LaRosa’s departure comes as multiple White House communications staffers quit their roles in the Biden administration in recent months. Earlier this month, the administration announced Kate Bedingfield would leave her post as White House communications director in late July after working for nearly three years for President Joe Biden and his 2020 campaign. “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 Ketanji Brown Jackson might not be sitting on the Supreme Court,” White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said in a statement at the time.

A source told CNN that Bedingfield long considered leaving the Biden administration, only giving the official notice this month. According to The Hill, Elizabeth Alexander, Jill Biden’s communications director, is thought to be a possible replacement for Bedingfield. Alexander wished LaRosa the best on Tuesday, saying on Twitter, “It’s hard to imagine this journey without you, LaRo. We will all miss your wit, media instincts, and news perspective. I have appreciated your partnership and friendship more than you know!” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
The @FLOTUS team has become and will remain my family and I am thankful for their constant mentoring, support, and friendship.— Michael LaRosa (@MichaelLaRosa46) July 26, 2022
