 Hoyer to step out of leadership role, clearing way for Jeffries
by Mike Lillis - 11/17/22 1:12 PM ET

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) announced Thursday that he will remain in Congress next year but won’t seek a leadership position, joining Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) who had announced the same decision moments before. 

The surprise development clears the way for Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.), the current chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, to jump several rungs up the leadership ladder to replace Pelosi in the next Congress, when Republicans will take control of the lower chamber. 

In a letter to fellow Democrats, Hoyer said he’s proud of his work in leadership, but “now is the time for a new generation of leaders.” He quickly endorsed Jeffries, who currently faces no other challenger.

Developing.

So Jim Clyburn gets bypassed again.  Go figure.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Guessing this is a youth thing to satisfy the call for 'generational change' in the Rat party.

Clyburn got passed over for promotion when they exclusively wanted old geezers, too.
