Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-VT) 2016 presidential campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, will not be returning to that role if Sanders decides to run for president in 2020 according to a CNN story published Wednesday afternoon.

Weaver, who has served as a longtime aide to Sanders, confirmed to CNN in an interview “that his position will be changing, most likely to senior strategic adviser to Sanders.”

A source who spoke with CNN about the matter said that this decision was made well before the New York Times reported on allegations of sexual harassment by staffers working on Sanders’ 2016 campaign.

According to CNN, “There is no clear favorite to replace Weaver as campaign manager should Sanders proceed as expected.”

The source also told CNN that Sanders is the “advanced stages” of mapping out the infrastructure for a 2020 campaign.

“For many months now there have been efforts to make sure the door is open should Sanders decide he should run for President,” the source told CNN. “That involves preliminary conversations with a number of top-level people who might take senior roles in the campaign, including for campaign manager.”
