Biden Taps Jaime Harrison To Lead Democratic National Committee

President-elect Joe Biden will choose South Carolina’s Jaime Harrison to head the Democratic National Committee, a source close to the decision, who was not authorized to speak ahead of the formal announcement, told NPR’s Scott Detrow.

Harrison is a former South Carolina Democratic Party chair, and his selection highlights the influence of another South Carolina Democrat, Rep. James Clyburn, the majority whip in the U.S. House.

Clyburn — a longtime Biden ally whom the president-elect credited for reviving his campaign ahead ofthe South Carolina primary — publicly advocated for Harrison to get the top spot at the DNC.
