Congressman Steven Horsford

Congressman Steven Horsford has been elected to serve as the 28th Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. Horsford will be sworn in as Chair when the new session of Congress begins in January. He has been elected to a two-year term that runs through the entire 118th Congress. He served as 1st Vice Chair during the 117th Congress. 

He issued the following statement after his election: 

“Thank you to my colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) for electing me the 28th Chair of our historic group. Over the last 50 years, the CBC has served as the ‘conscience of the Congress,’ Helping guide the legislative priorities that have shaped our nation and helped improve the lives of African Americans and all our constituents. As Chair, I will provide the leadership, strategic vision and execute on our plans to guide us on a path that will deliver positive socioeconomic outcomes for the communities and constituencies we serve. 

Representing the 4th Congressional District of Nevada has uniquely prepared me for this role, by being a district as diverse as our nation—both in the people and the geography that lie within our boundaries. As Chair of CBC, I will be able to put a spotlight on the hard working people of the 4th Congressional District and advocate for our broad coalition of people that make Nevada tick.”
