Stale Flakes: Average Age of House Democratic Leadership is 76

Guest post by Joe Hoft


House Democrats overwhelmingly decided to go with the past by keeping Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

The vote was 134 to 63 for second place finisher Rep. Tim Ryan.


Pelosi is 76.

The top three Democrats in leadership are 76 (Pelosi), 77 (Steny Hoyer) and 76 (Jim Clyburn). The average age of the Democratic party leadership is 76.

The top three Republican leaders, in contrast, are 46 (Paul Ryan), 51 (Kevin McCarthy) and 51 (Steve Scalise).

Donald Trump at 70 is younger than the House Democratic leadership.
