David Cicilline launches bid for assistant Speaker

Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) officially jumped into the race for assistant Speaker on Thursday, as he seeks to climb a few rungs up the leadership ladder.

Cicilline serves as chairman of the House Democrats’s messaging arm, the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC). The Rhode Island progressive will square off against Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-Calif.) in the race to replace Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), who is running for an open Senate seat.
