Pelosi steps down from leadership; stays in House November 17, 2022 By fredrichlariccia Speaker Nancy Pelosi just announced she will step down from Democratic Caucus leadership but will stay in the House. She gave one of the most powerful and moving farewell speeches I have ever heard. Please share widely! +10
“The hour has come for a new generation to lead the Democratic Caucus.” Speaker Pelosi
Nothing against them, but Hoyer and Clyburn should follow suit to allow a complete generational shift all at once.
Leader Hoyer has announced he will NOT seek elected leadership but will remain in Congress.
Whip Jim Clyburn said: “I look forward doing whatever I can to assist our new generation of Democratic Leaders which I hope to be Hakeem Jeffries, Katherine Clark and Pete Aguilar.” ..
New House Democratic Leadership team expected to be:
#1 Hakeem Jeffries (NY) — Leader
#2 Katherine Clark (MA) — Whip
#3 Pete Aguilar (CA) — Conference Chair
GO BLUE !!!
My new nickname for Nancy Pelosi is the “Grey Eminence”– a powerful decision-maker or advisor who operates ‘behind the scenes’, or in a non-public or unofficial capacity.
