President Obama's speechwriter, MA native, resigns
WASHINGTON (WHDH) -- President Obama's longtime speechwriter, John Favreau, is resigning on Friday.
He has spent the last eight years as the president's right hand man. The 27-year-old Massachusetts native got his start writing speeches for former State Senator John Kerry.
He says one of the most difficult assignments he ever had was writing President Obama's Nobel Prize acceptance speech.
Favreau is the second youngest speechwriter in the history of the white house.
He now plans to open a consulting business in Washington D.C.
