President-elect Joe Biden intends to name Jaime Harrison, the former South Carolina Democratic Party chair and 2020 Senate candidate, to be the next chair of the Democratic National Committee, Democrats familiar with the decision tell CNN.

(CNN)President-elect Joe Biden intends to name Jaime Harrison, the former South Carolina Democratic Party chair and 2020 Senate candidate, to be the next chair of the Democratic National Committee, Democrats familiar with the decision tell CNN.

"The job of doing the work is on the Hill and in the White House, the job of making sure that message gets out and it is promoted and disseminated to voters and so those voters have an understanding of it, I believe that's the job of the DNC," Harrison said, adding that the DNC's messaging should make people "understand this is what you get, when you have Democrats in control. "

The DNC will fall within O'Malley Dillon's purview in the White House, Democratic sources tell CNN, meaning Biden's former campaign manager will be tasked with ensuring that the political committee works in step with Biden's political goals.

Harrison, should he win the expected support from DNC members, will take over a much different Democratic National Committee than the one current Chair Tom Perez took over in 2017.
