Rep. Hakeem Jeffries marks one year as top House Democrat

Brooklyn Congressman Hakeem Jeffries is wrapping up his first year as the top Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

He had big shoes to fill, and 2023 provided plenty of surprises – some historic – for the new leader to navigate.

With 2024 around the corner, Jeffries has visited dozens of cities this year to support fellow House Democrats and fundraise. He also gave speeches at state and local party gatherings across the country, with stops that included New Hampshire, Texas, and Minnesota.
