Press Releases


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Dean Phillips issued the following statement.

“Speaker Pelosi’s decision to pass the torch to a new generation of leadership in the Democratic Caucus is the right and honorable one. As the first female Speaker of the House and one of the most successful of all time, I honor Speaker Pelosi’s service to our country and our Congress – especially over these extraordinarily difficult past four years. It is now time to look to the future, and I believe Hakeem Jeffries is the right leader at the right time for our party and our nation. I will enthusiastically support his candidacy and will do anything and everything I can to help him introduce our historically diverse and remarkably talented caucus to the American people as we work together to move our country forward in the 118th Congress.”
