This post was updated to correct O'Malley Dillon and Gaspard's positions
Democratic National Committee political director Clyde Williams is leaving his job this week, senior party officials tell The Hotline, the second top DNC staffer to leave in recent weeks amid an ongoing personnel shuffle.
Party chairman Tim Kaine told DNC members on Saturday Williams would leave this week. Williams, who had what one source characterized as an "abrasive" relationship with DNC leadership, will return to his native New York and will not join President Obama's re-election campaign.
DNC executive director Jen O'Malley Dillon will soon leave the DNC. O'Malley Dillon will decamp to Chicago, where she will serve as Obama's deputy campaign manager. Other senior DNC staffers are expected to leave for Obama's re-election bid as well.
In their place, Obama will install the remnants of the White House political shop. O'Malley Dillon will be replaced by White House political director Patrick Gaspard, and others from the White House will follow Gaspard to DNC headquarters.
