Lewis is currently the executive director of Rep. Steny Hoyer's campaign office. He has worked on multiple campaigns, including Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.

Lewis will replace Michael Vaughn, who resigned an hour before the state's legislative session began on Jan. 11, citing health reasons.

Vaughn's resignation came amid a federal bribery investigation into bribery involving elected officials and liquor store owners from Prince George's. While Vaughn has not been charged, prosecutors have said an unnamed official was under investigation.
