The 2018 U.S. elections not only flipped control of the House of Representatives from the Republicans to the Democrats. They also dramatically changed the composition of the Democratic Party delegation. Bolstered by an influx of newcomers, many who ran on anti-establishment platforms, the ranks of the Congressional Progressive Caucus have swelled to their greatest numbers ever. When the 116th Congress convenes in January, the Progressive Caucus will include at least 95 members, forty percent of the Democratic delegation, and the largest single caucus in the House. Wisconsin Second Congressional District Representative Mark Pocan has served as the co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus since 2017, and he joined Monday host Brian Standing on December 17, 2018.
