(WASHINGTON) – The Congressional Black Caucus announced Tuesday that they will endorse Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., for minority whip.
“He has been an extremely effective consensus-building member of the Democratic Leadership who has brought together all corners of our caucus behind a unified agenda,” said Rep. Barbara Lee, Chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus.
“As we transition into the minority, it is even more important that Congressman Clyburn continue in his role as Whip.”
The endorsement comes after Lee, D-Calif., announced her personal endorsement for Clyburn on Monday.
