Pelosi’s New Position For Clyburn To Avert Dem Battle: ‘Assistant Leader’

By Molly K. Hooper

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) asked her colleagues Saturday to support Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) for “Assistant Leader,” a newly created third-ranking position at the leadership table.

In a letter to her fellow Democrats, Pelosi wrote “should I receive the privilege of serving as House Democratic Leader, I will be very honored to nominate our outstanding colleague, Congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, to serve in the number three House Democratic position. I will also ask the Caucus to designate that position as Assistant Leader.”

House Democrats averted a nasty fight when Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced the creation of the new No. 3 ranking spot for Clyburn.
