"Scoop: John Kerry To Leave Biden Administration, Help Campaign"

"John Kerry, the U.S. special presidential envoy for climate, will leave the administration later this winter, and plans to help President Biden's campaign, Axios has learned.

Kerry, 80, thinks Biden's reelection is the "single biggest" difference that can be made this year for climate progress at home and globally, a source close to the administration told Axios.

Kerry — former Secretary of State and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and the Democratic nominee for president in 2004 — plans to help tell the climate story in the context of Biden's campaign.

Kerry is working with White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients on transitioning out of government in the coming months (before spring)."
