Rep. Jim Clyburn

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries seems poised to succeed Nancy Pelosi as House Democratic leader.

In a letter dated March 31, Democrats asked President Biden to extend the pause through the end of the year and take steps toward canceling the federal student loans. 

South Carolina Congressman and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn is not only seeking re-election at the age of 81, but he is also all but daring any candidates to challenge him for the seat he's held for nearly the past three decades: "Come get it."

Clyburn echoed concerns about Senate obstruction on constitutional rights, calling for an exception to the filibuster.
