There’s been a leadership change at a major super PAC backing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D).

Buffy Wicks, the executive director of the pro-Clinton Priorities USA Action super PAC, is stepping down from the post, Buzzfeed reported on Wednesday.

Wicks, a top Democratic operative, is in talks with Clinton campaign aides to serve in a top role on the “coordinated side” of the Clinton political operation —meaning she could serve at the Democratic National Committee or inside Clinton’s presidential campaign.

The New York Times reported the same day that Anne Caprara, currently the vice president for campaigns at EMILY’s List, will take over as executive director. Meanwhile, David Brock, who founded a trio of pro-Clinton groups, is returning to the board of Priorities USA. His return comes after he left the super PAC over an internal dispute.

The moves follow Guy Cecil, the former executive director of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, reportedly coming to Priorities USA as the chief executive officer and co-chairman of the board.

Caprera worked with Cecil at the DSCC as political director.

“Buffy has been a strong leader and smart strategist for Priorities and I have no doubt she will continue to be a valuable ally and supporter of Hillary Clinton,” Cecil said in a statement according to the Times.
