Rep. James Clyburn (D., S.C.) , the incoming House Assistant Democratic Leader and longtime member of Democratic leadership, is nominating Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D., N.Y.) for speaker for the Democrats.

Mr. Clyburn's political influence in South Carolina played a key role in helping President Biden get elected and he is well-respected by colleagues. He stayed in Democratic leadership after former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) left their leadership posts last year.
