House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries visited Atlanta on Thursday, his first trip to the city since he was elected the leader of the chamber’s Democrats.

He met with Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens to discuss affordable housing, public safety, infrastructure and Georgia’s strategic role in the 2024 elections.

He also participated in a student town hall event at Clark Atlanta University with U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Lithonia. And he swung by Ohio River South, the influential downtown lobbying firm headed up by Howard Franklin, to talk about the party’s priorities.
