NANCY OUT, HAKEEM IN: Jeffries Replaces Pelosi as House Democrat Leader

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.30.22

House Democrats have elected Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) to lead them.

Next Congress will see Nancy Pelosi, 82, step down from her leadership role and pass the baton to Jeffries; he was uncontested for the role —Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, opted to step down.

Jeffries, a 52-year-old New Yorker, will be the first African American to serve as House Democratic leader, Fox reports.

“Leadership is incredibly important,” said Jeffries. “When we get an opportunity as diverse leaders to serve in positions of consequence, the most meaningful thing we can do in that space is an incredibly good job.”

From Fox News:

House Democrats also elected Massachusetts Rep. Katherine Clark to serve as Democratic Whip. California Rep. Pete Aguilar was elected to serve as chairman of the House Democratic caucus. Both Clark and Aguilar served in leadership under Pelosi for the past two years.

“Effective leadership is not about individual ambition, but our collective good. It is about truly listening and understanding what each member needs to be successful,” said Clark. “I will use my voice at the leadership table to bring people and solutions together.”

Pelosi, D-Calif., announced her decision to step down as leader shortly after Democrats lost control of the House of Representatives in this year’s midterm elections. The decision created the first open race for Democratic leader since Pelosi was elevated to the role in 2003.

The RNC’s official Twitter account shared a thread revealing 8 times Jeffires denied election results and declared former President Donald Trump as “illegitimate.”
