Nancy Pelosi Endorses THIS Presidential Candidate

California’s longtime progressive Democratic Congresswoman, Nancy Pelosi, has finally made her endorsement for Presidential candidate. Her support has long been sought after considering her seniority in the House of Representatives. Rep. Pelosi has officially endorsed former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.).

The House Minority Leader’s endorsement comes very shortly before the California primary. Which is expected to be a tight race. She told ABC News, 

 “I’m a voter in California and I have voted for Hillary Clinton for president of the United States and proud to endorse her for that position … It’s not over until it’s over.

Rep. Pelosi sat down with George Stephanopoulos and commented on the Democratic primary. In reference to Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) she commented,

“Bernie knows better than anyone what’s on the line in the election and that we at some point have to unify as we go forward … He wants to influence the platform. I think that’s fine.”

She chimed in on rumors about the possibility that Sec. Clinton would tap Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as her Vice Presidential candidate.

“We’ve had two men over and over again for hundreds of years … I think that two women, whoever they may be, that would be fabulous as well, but Hillary Clinton will choose the person that she feels most comfortable with.”

Rep. Pelosi maintained that she held out on endorsing a candidate publicly because of her superdelegate status.

The Associated Press announced early this morning that Sec. Clinton has become the presumptive nominee after earning enough delegates to cinch the nomination.

Rep. Pelosi insisted that voting in California is not finished and primary elections haven’t taken place in five states. Sec. Clinton and Sen. Sanders both denounced the AP report, noting the AP came to that conclusion using superdelegate votes that won’t be cast until the Democratic Convention in July.

If Hillary Clinton ends up winning the democratic primary she and Rep. Pelosi will have something in common. In 2007 , Rep. Pelosi became the very first female Speaker of the House of Representatives.

If Clinton wins, she will become the first female President, and whether you like the two or not, Rep. Pelosi and Sec. Clinton will have both broken the glass ceiling for women.
