Hakeem Jeffries launched his bid to be Nancy Pelosi's successor (154 hits)


Hakeem Jeffries launched his bid to be Nancy Pelosi's successor. Some see him as a positive force for racial justice, but others are concerned about his silence toward left-wing progressive issues.
Story by insider@insider.com (Yoonji Han)

US Rep. Hakeem Jeffries officially launched his bid to be Speaker Nancy Pelosi's successor on Friday. The congressman is widely expected to succeed Pelosi as House Democratic leader next year.

Jeffries, a Brooklyn native, would make history by becoming the first Black lawmaker to lead a party in Congress. And, at 52, Jeffries would represent a generational change from the current House Democratic leaders, who are three decades his senior (Pelosi is 82 years old).

While some people regard Jeffries as a leader who could usher in positive change with issues concerning racial justice and voting rights, there are others who believe his history of opposition toward some left-wing progressive issues signal a less dramatic shift in Democratic leadership.
