Steny Hamilton Hoyer, born June 14, 1939 (age 85), is House Majority Leader, the #2 job after Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He is a liberal Democrat.

Maryland Senate

He won a seat in the Maryland Senate at the age of 27, and just a few years later, at the age of 35, was elected President of the Senate, the youngest ever in state history.

U.S. House of Representatives

Hoyer was expected to become the Minority Leader after the Dems lost the majority in the House. However, to the dismay of some, Pelosi refused to resign despite the landslide loss.

Congressman Hoyer of Mechanicsville represents Maryland's Fifth Congressional District, which includes Calvert, Charles and St. Mary's counties and portions of Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties. He is now serving in his 15th term in the House of Representatives, and is the longest-serving House Member from Southern Maryland in history, as well as the highest-ranking Member of Congress in Maryland history.
