CAP President is Friends With New House Democratic Leader

Mr. Patrick Gaspard, President and CEO of the Center for American Progress (CAP), is a close ally of new House Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), according to Punchbowl News, which notes that the two become close friends in New York and know each other from when Gaspard was a top official at the labor union 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East.

Last year, Rep. Jeffries spoke at a CAP event welcoming Jeffries as the think tank's new leader.

Earlier this year, CAP co-founder John Podesta was tapped to serve as Senior Advisor to President Biden for Clean Energy Innovation and Implementation.
