Adam Schiff to barnstorm the country as he mulls leadership run

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, will visit the districts of more than 10 Frontliners and Democratic candidates in June and July, an attempt to continue to build support for a potential leadership run and help keep seats in Democrats’ hands.

Schiff’s travel plans, which hasn’t been reported previously, are just one piece of evidence that the longtime California Democrat is seriously mulling a run for the top slot in the party’s leadership. Schiff has also been conducting meetings with members of the House Democratic Caucus to hear what they think the next generation of the party’s leadership should look like.

We reported in April that Schiff was eyeing a run for leadership in a post-Nancy Pelosi world. But the chatter about Schiff’s ambitions have gotten louder in recent weeks as he continues to talk to House Democrats about the composition of the top rung of the caucus next Congress. We’re told that Schiff isn’t asking lawmakers for their support, but he seems interested in the top job in the Democratic Caucus.
