Marc Short, the White House legislative director, told his team Friday he will be leaving the White House this summer, a source tells CNN.
Short told his legislative affairs staff that he discussed his departure with his wife and family and laid out a timeline for leaving this summer. The source described the mood in the meeting as "bittersweet" because Short is well-liked among the staff.
Short led the White House's efforts to repeal Obamacare, which failed, and to pass tax cuts, which succeeded.
