Hakeem Jeffries

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) officially announced his bid for House Democratic leader on Friday.

If chosen to succeed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Jeffries would make history as the first Black lawmaker to lead a party in Congress. In a letter to colleagues, Jeffries outlined his vision for the Democratic Party, including pushing for policies to combat crime and gun violence, and retaking the House majority in the 2024 elections.

“House Democrats are actually the party that defends freedom, promotes economic opportunity and values families by uplifting them,” he said in his letter. “We must make sure that the perception of the Democratic brand matches up with the reality that we do in fact authentically share values that unite the Heartland, Urban America, Rural America, Suburban America and Small Town America.”
