WASHINGTON - Stacey Bernards, spokesperson for House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, released the following statement today:

      "Mr. Hoyer has worked extraordinarily hard to unify the caucus and take back the House for Democrats, and that is his first focus.  As a result of that unity, he is confident that we will be successful in November and intends to run for Majority Leader.  He believes that his work as Whip, Caucus Chair and with the DCCC has earned him the support of the overwhelming majority of House Democrats."
