While working for Axios, Alexi McCammond covered Joe Biden's presidential campaign in 2019 and 2020. This way, she got in contact with TJ Ducklo, who was Biden's press secretary at the time.
At first, the relationship between TJ Ducklo and Alexi was just professional and nothing more. But it blossomed into a friendship, and eventually, they began to have feelings for each other. Then in the November of 2020, they began dating.
'We both realized we both felt the same way,' TJ Ducklo told People. 'We're both really happy, and we wanted to do it the right way.'
And the two beginning to date meant that they had to disclose their relationship to their bosses. After Alexi told her editors at Axios, she was reassigned to cover progressive lawmakers in Congress and across the U.S. as well.
'When my personal life had the potential to interfere with my work, I didn't think twice about sharing my happiness in November with Axios that I'd found someone in TJ who shows up for me in a way I'd only hoped for,' Alexi McCammond explains.
TJ Ducklo also did the same. And when it comes to their jobs, Alexi and Ducklo never talk about it with each other. 'We keep it totally separate,' Ducklo says. 'I don't know what she's working on and she doesn't know what I'm working on.'
In January 2021, TJ Ducklo was appointed as a deputy press secretary for President Joe Biden's administration. But he did not get to work in the position for long, as he resigned on February 13, 2021.
