According to the reports, Kate Childs Graham, who has been the director of speechwriting for the past year in the VPs office is likely to leave by the end of the month. The resignation comes amid the speculations of a complete revamp in Ms Harris’s office after the VP continues to deal with low poll ratings.

Herbie Ziskend, deputy communications director to the vice president, paid tribute to his departing colleague on Twitter.

He tweeted: “Kate is a star, and has been an integral part of Team VP during this first year.

“Kate is committed, hard-working, hilarious – a great colleague and friend. I’ll miss working with her every day, but excited for her next adventure.”

According to reports, the VP office has seen a virtual exodus over the course of her first year in office as staffers complain about their workplace morale.

Harris’ communications director Ashley Etienne resigned in November to “pursue other opportunities.”

Ms Etienne’s resignation came after reports of exasperation between the Harris and Biden offices amid lagging approval ratings for Harris.

Ms Harris poll numbers remain stuck below 40 percent.

A Real Clear Politics rolling average shows 38.6 percent of respondents give her a favorable rating, while 53.7 percent have an unfavorable view of the vice president.

However, the most-talked-about resignation was chief spokesperson Symone Sanders who left at the end of December, and has since taken up a role with MSNBC.

The series of resignations began after Harris’s widely criticized visit to Central America in June.
Harris was mocked for delivering a simple message of, ‘Do not come,’ in her role as point person for tackling the root causes of migration from the area.

That trip also featured a case of mistaken identity at a press conference.

Harris called on ‘Maria Fernanda of Univision’ to ask a question, only it turned out to be a fan with the same name as a reporter based in Miami.

Meanwhile, in a press conference on the eve of the anniversary of his inauguration, President Biden said unambiguously that Harris would be his running mate for re-election in 2024.

Biden said: “She is going to be my running mate – number one. And number two, I did put her in charge. I think she’s doing a good job.”
