Hakeem Jeffries announces his candidacy to replace Pelosi in the Democratic leadership in the US House

MADRID, 18 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -

New York representative Hakeem Jeffries has announced this Friday his candidacy to replace Nancy Pelosi in the Democratic leadership in the United States House, once she announced that she was leaving him after confirming the victory of the Republicans in the midterm elections. mandate.

The possible election of Jeffries, third in the Democratic rank of power in the House, represents an important generational change within the leadership of the party, since both Pelosi and the other two leaders behind her, Steny Hoyer and Jim Clyburn, they are octogenarians.

Waiting for Pelosi to rule on the matter, who has already done so has been Clyburn himself, who believes that Jeffries' step forward is "absolutely fantastic", while Hoyer considers that "it is always good for a party to have blood, strength and new ideas".

Clyburn has gone further and has also shown his support for the other two Democratic candidates who would complete the trio led by Jeffries, Katherine Clark to be in charge of party discipline, and Pete Aguilar to chair the Democratic caucus.

Just as Pelosi made history by being the first woman to lead the United States House of Representatives, if Jeffries, who represents that more conservative line within the party, is elected and the Democrats regain control of it, she would be the first. black person to be their keynote speaker.
