Is Allyson Schwartz on track for U.S. House leadership post?

Check out this interesting piece in National Journal about Democrats who could be in line for the top jobs in the U.S. House of Representatives when Rep. Nancy Pelosi is no longer the leader. Among the names floated in the story (which we saw linked on PoliticsPa) is U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz, who represents parts of Philadelphia and Montgomery County.

From the story:

Colleagues, staffers, and outside strategists say that at least a half-dozen younger lawmakers—some of whom already hold positions where their work for colleagues could equal chits—are prepping for leadership ascension.

The names most often floated are Democratic Caucus Vice Chairman Xavier Becerra of California; Budget Committee ranking member Chris Van Hollen of Maryland; Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida; Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel of New York; DCCC National Finance Chairman and New Democratic Coalition Chairman Joseph Crowley of New York, who also serves as chief deputy whip; and Rep. Allyson Schwartz of Pennsylvania, the DCCC recruitment chairwoman who also manages the organization's candidate services.

Here's a link to a profile we did on Schwartz last year.
