Congratulations to Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Birmingham) on her very successful third run for Congress in the newly-minted 11th District. How solid and influential is her position viewed amongst her congressional peers? According to Politico, it seems in the waning days of the election, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), as of this writing the fifth-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives, but who is seeking to coalesce a contingent to make him Speaker of the House if/when Speaker Nancy Pelosi retires, quietly flew into metro Detroit and met with Stevens over tacos at an Oakland eatery. The purpose? To gain her support for his candidacy, which is likely to be against Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). Jeffries, at 62, is 30 years younger than Pelosi and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn of South Carolina, also 82, and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, 83 of Maryland. According to Politico, Stevens told Jeffries she was on board with him, although it may all be for naught because it looks like Republicans will take over the House.
