fundraiser Julianna Smoot is the most likely candidate to take over the
position of White House Social Secretary in the wake of Desiree
Rogers's resignation, an Obama administration official tells ABC News.
The White House announced Friday that Rogers would step down at the end of February.
Smoot is chief of staff for U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, but her background lies in political fundraising. Smoot was the national finance director of President Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, and before that worked on then-Sen. Tom Daschle's (D-S.D.) 2004 Senate campaign, and former Sen. John Edwards's (D-N.C.) 1998 Senate campaign.
