New Minority Leader Elected in the House

Congressman Jeffries was chosen for the new Congress.

Representative Hakeem Jeffries of New York was elected by his party to serve as their new leader in the 2023 House of Representatives. Nancy Pelosi announced in November that she would not be seeking to retain her position of leadership in the 118th Congress, causing an overall shift in leadership within the party. Californian Pete Aguilar was elected to the position of caucus chairman, Representative Jeffries’ current role, and Representative Katherine Clark of Massachusetts won the post known as “whip.”

“Together, this new generation of leaders reflects the vibrancy and diversity of our great nation – and they will reinvigorate our Caucus with their new energy, ideas, and perspective,” Speaker Pelosi stated.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Congressman Jeffries to seek God’s wisdom as he assumes the leadership of his party in the House.
  • For representatives in the majority as they determine who to elect as Speaker of the House.
  • For all the members of Congress who will hold new roles in the 118th Congress.
