Democrats ‘need new blood,’ congresswoman says



Democrats need leaders who are younger and more reflective of the country, Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“We need a new generation,” Slotkin, who is 46, said. “We need new blood, period, across the Democratic Party in the House, the Senate and the White House.”

President Joe Biden, who was the oldest person to assume the presidency, is set to become an octogenarian next month. The three top Democrats in the House — Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn — have each already hit that milestone.
