I look forward to continuing to work with them in the 118th Congress.”

Democrats have shown the American public what is possible when the rational lead. We will continue to do so in the new Congress,” he said. “I cannot wait to build on the progress that Speaker Pelosi ushered in with our Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries. His election, as well as the elections of whip Katherine Clark and caucus chair Pete Aguilar, represent a historic, generational turn for our nation. They are a leadership team of which all Americans can be proud. It is the privilege of a lifetime to serve in the House and represent my wonderful constituents in Los Angeles County. I am buoyed by the determination that we will build on the progress of the last few years and continue to put people over politics.”
