TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY INSIDERS SPECULATE ON THE CONSEQUENCES OF CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER NO LONGER LEADING BLACK CAUCUS!!!
A national move might have consequences for Kansas City's Congressman Cleaver.
Rep. Marcia Fudge Elected the 23rd Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus
In turn, Congressman Cleaver is out.
And a rather well-informed Kansas City Insider tells us this:
"With the news that Congressman Cleaver is not going to be chair of the congressional black caucus any longer, is this the beginning of the end? Expect the 2014 congressional race to begin..."
On the other hand, we could see the Congressman taking a more moderate tone in his new district . . . Still, the Black Caucus gig really raised Congressman Cleaver's profile and there is certainly a cost for no longer holding the high profile job.
