Press Release

Washington – Yesterday, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) nominated Rep. Linda Sánchez (CA-38) to serve as Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus for the 115th Congress. After her election, he released the following statement:

“I could not be prouder to see Rep.Sánchez elected today. We in Connecticut consider her the honorary sixth member of our delegation because of her personal ties to our state. Her husband is a lifelong resident of Connecticut, a former Norwich councilman, and a previous staff member of mine. Her children have lived and gone to school both here and in California. She is a passionate leader who knows the challenges Connecticut families and the country as a whole face. It was truly a privilege to nominate her.”

After yesterday’s election, Sánchez became the first Latina elected to House leadership.
