Check out this article in Politico, featuring U.S. Senator Mark Begich (D) Alaska. Begich is leading a group of younger and recently elected Democratic senators and demanding they be heard.

Democratic Senate majority leader Harry Reid has made changes to appease junior Democrats, including naming Begich chairman of the Steering and Outreach Committee, and the Alaskan plans to overhaul the sleepy leadership panel to bolster Democrats’ ability to connect with voters from coast to coast.
