Good to see House Democrats overwhelmingly (203-32) in support of Nancy Pelosi for Speaker. See below for a statement by Rep. Donald McEachin and a “retweet” by Rep. Don Beyer. I’ll add more statements if/when I see them…
Rep. Donald McEachin:
I was proud to cast my caucus vote for Nancy Pelosi to be the next Speaker of the House. I have no doubt she is the best Speaker to lead the People’s House in these challenging times. Leader Pelosi is battle-tested, experienced, knowledgeable, and uniquely prepared to help us pass critical priorities. For me, we must finally address the serious and urgent issue of climate change, an objective of mine for years, both as a state senator and a congressman.
I know she will be fair and principled in how she stands up for our shared values represented within the ‘big tent’ caucus and the entire House. We are fortunate to have such a talented and able woman as our leader.
Rep. Don Beyer:
