Columbia, SC (WOLO) —Congressman Jim Clyburn is running unopposed for the third highest ranking position in the House.
Today Colorado Democrat Diana Degette withdrew her bid for majority whip a position he held the last time Democrats had the majority.
According to a McClatchy report, Degette withdrew due to internal pressure to re-elect experienced leaders.
Congressman Clyburn says while he will be honored to serve as whip again, he may aim for a more lofty position.
The Congressional election is November 28th.
