Instead, Vice President Mike Pence’s 35-year-old chief of staff will go to a pro-Trump super PAC.

The president, who announced Kelly’s departure Saturday, will make a decision on a new chief of staff by the end of the year.

A senior White House source said Ayers has been clear for weeks that he was planning on moving his young family back to Georgia in December, and a time frame on being chief of staff had been a part of his discussions with the president.
