Norcross named to House assistant whip post
The first-term Democrat from Camden was appointed assistant whip by House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, of Maryland. As an assistant whip, Norcross will be called upon to work with congressional colleagues to gauge support for upcoming legislation and advise party leadership.
The appointment is the second leadership post assigned to Norcross since his election last November as the 1st District’s representative. He was also named to the Democrats’ Steering and Policy Committee and the Communications Committee.
