SCDP Celebrates Congressman Clyburn’s Leadership of House Democrats

Feb 14, 2024

Today, Congressman Clyburn announced his decision to step down from House Democratic Leadership at the end of this current term and reaffirmed his commitment to running for re-election for South Carolina’s Sixth Congressional District. South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Christale Spain issued the following statement:

“For decades, Congressman Clyburn’s steady leadership and invaluable guidance helped Congressional Democrats achieve historic wins for South Carolina and all Americans. As a member of his staff I saw firsthand how he delivered for South Carolinians every day by fighting to provide student loan relief, increase funding for HBCUs, and expand access to healthcare. We are proud his colleagues selected him time and time again to lead our Party in the US House of Representatives. As he seeks re-election, we are lucky he will continue to fight to make America’s greatness accessible and affordable for all.”
