Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stated this morning that she would be okay with Senator Sanders as the nominee for President.
While many democratic congressional members have hesitated at the idea of a Sanders nominee, Pelosi seems to be fine with the idea. Chuck Schumer is another democratic leader that said this week he would be okay with Sanders as the party’s nominee. Their logic lays in the fact that they want anyone who will beat President Trump, and they believe Sanders could do that.
While Bernie Sanders has not yet clinched the nomination for Presidential candidate, the recent endorsement of the House Majority Whip sure helps make his case. The next round of primaries takes place on March 3rd.
