Klain resigns as Biden’s chief of staff
Ron Klain, Vice President Joe Biden’s chief of staff, is resigning.
“As my chief of staff in the White House, Ron has done an exceptional job of building my team, implementing my direction on top priorities, and providing invaluable counsel,” Biden said in a statement Tuesday. “He has also played a key role in establishing the strong, positive relationship that exists between my staff and the President’s team.”
This White House has been notable for the smooth relations between President Obama and Biden.
Klain, who had served as chief of staff to Vice President Al Gore from 1995 to 1999, will become president of Case Holdings, an investment company, The New York Times reported.
Klain led the Gore team during the 2000 presidential election recount in Florida.
