Congressman Brad Sherman Releases Statement in Support of Nancy Pelosi for Speaker
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Brad Sherman (CA-30), today released the following statement supporting Leader Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House:
“As I told the Los Angeles Times last summer, ‘you don’t fire the coach after you win the World Series.’ On Election Day, and under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi, House Democrats won a historic victory, with the largest increase in Democratic seats in three decades.
“Leader Pelosi has a proven track record as a skilled and effective legislator, negotiator, and leader in advancing Democratic priorities. That makes her the best person to lead the Democratic Caucus moving forward.
“But it is not merely about what she has accomplished, it is about what she will do. As we welcome the most diverse class of incoming Congressmen and women, Leader Pelosi is poised to battle with a Republican White House and Senate to deliver a legislative agenda for the American people.
“It’s not news that I believe Leader Pelosi is the most qualified person, at the most important time, for the most important job. She has my full support for Speaker of the House.”
