Clyburn and Hoyer face off for Minority Whip

While everyone is talking about Pelosi's run for House Minority Leader, no one seems to be mentioning the race for Minority Whip. Steny Hoyer and James Clyburn are facing off for the position.

Hoyer, who is currently the House Majority Leader, represents the moderate wing of the part and has picked up support from the party establishment. He is marked by his less polarizing persona and is favored to win the position.

Clyburn, an African American congressman, has picked up the endorsements of the Congressional Black Caucus as well as the progressive wing of the party. Only time will tell us the result of this feud.
