After coming to Congress in 1993, Rep. Clyburn (SC-06) quickly established himself as a leader among Democrats in Congress and served as co-president of his freshman class. He has been a champion of rural and economic development, and has played an important role in restoring historic buildings and sites on the campuses of historically black colleges and universities.
As Majority Whip, Clyburn was instrumental in ensuring H.R. 1, the For the People Act, was the first piece of legislation brought to the House floor in the 116th Congress. This bill is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. It is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote.
