Hakeem Jeffries Becomes First Black Congressional Party Leader

Via YahooNews:
New York Representative Hakeem Jeffries has been elected head of the House Democratic caucus, becoming the first Black lawmaker to lead a major American party in Congress.

Jeffries was elected in a unanimous, closed-door vote on Wednesday. He is now slated to become the House minority leader after the Republicans managed to secure a slim House majority during the midterm elections earlier this month.

Reps. Katherine Clark (D-Mass.) and Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) will join Jeffries in party leadership as Democratic whip and caucus chair, respectively.

The change in leadership comes after longtime party leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced she would be stepping down from leadership after more than 20 years in the role. Pelosi was the first woman to ever hold the speakership.
