Washington – United States Vice President-elect Kamala Harris announced on Thursday new members of her White House senior staff, reports Xinhua news agency.
In a statement, Harris said Tina Flournoy, an aide to former US President Bill Clinton, will be her chief of staff.
Rohini Kosoglu, a senior advisor on the Biden-Harris transition team, will serve as the vice president-elect’s domestic policy advisor and Nancy McEldowney, a diplomatic veteran, will be her national security advisor, according to the statement.
The transition team said these public servants “have the experience to hit the ground running on day one.”
Harris announced late last month that Symone Sanders will be her senior advisor and chief spokesperson and Ashley Etienne will serve as her communications director.
US states are moving to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential race while sitting President Donald Trump, who has refused to concede, is still trying to overturn the results with lawsuits.
Harris, US senator from California and Biden’s running mate, will become the country’s first female vice president and the first African American and first Asian American to hold that post after the inauguration. – Bernama
