Vice President Kamala Harris is losing another staffer.

Harris communications director Jamal Simmons is planning on leaving his role with the Vice President’s office next month, according to a Friday Politico report.

“Working for Vice President Harris has been an honor and a privilege,” Simmons said of his departure in a statement provided to Politico.

“I’m so thankful for the confidence she put in me and I will miss this fantastic team more than anything.”

The communications aide had served under the Vice President for roughly a year.

Anita Dunn, an advisor to President Joe Biden, hailed Simmons’ service in a statement to Politico following the resignation.

“Jamal has been a great partner in the vice president’s office and he is a talented member of our White House communications team,” Dunn said of the Democratic operative.

“He has been a vital driver in communicating the work of the vice president and our shared White House agenda during a very critical year, culminating in history-defying results.”

Simmons is the second vice presidential staffer to quit working for Harris in as many weeks.
