Larson Loses Leadership Slot, Other Delegation Changes

By Ana Radelat

Washington—It was a good news/bad news day for the state’s congressional delegation.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s decision, which she announced today, to run again for the House Democrats’ top leadership spot—which she is expected to win—is good for Rosa L. DeLauro, the state’s longtime representative from the 3rd District. DeLauro wants to remain co-chairwoman of the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee, a position that’s appointed by the Democratic leader.

But Rep. John Larson, D-1st District, gets the short end because he is term-limited in his job as head of the Democratic caucus, the 4th-ranking House Democratic leadership job. With Pelosi staying put in the top slot, the House members in the Nos. 2 and 3 spots can’t move up in the leadership elections that will be held after Thanksgiving because no one is ready to challenge Pelosi.

So there will be no chance for Larson to run for the No. 3 spot, that of “assistant leader.”
