Pence's press secretary to leave White House

Written by Lisa

Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary, Marc Lotter, is leaving the administration.

Lotter will serve until the end of the month. He worked as press secretary on Pence’s reelection campaign for governor of Indiana and stayed in the spokesman role when Pence became Donald Trump’s running mate. He was constantly by Pence’s side on the campaign trail and has been a frequent surrogate for the administration on cable news.
