Pelosi: “Fabulous” Bernie Sanders ‘Might Win The Nomination’
Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is excited about Bernie Sanders and his potential to win the Democratic nomination.
At a Tuesday event at George Washington University, she discussed Sanders and how she believes in him as a candidate.
“It would be fabulous to have a woman president,” Pelosi said. “You can’t ask somebody to vote for somebody because of their gender.”
“[Hillary Clinton] is a very qualified person who happens to be a woman, but I haven’t endorsed anybody yet,” Pelosi said.
“Bernie Sanders was my colleague in the House. We voted against DOMA, you know, against all of those things people are subjecting to scrutiny now. He’s fabulous, and he has a very important tonic for the country and for the Democratic Party because he has ideas,” Pelosi said.
“He might win the nomination,” she said. “I don’t know that because in terms of the demographics of how popular she is in the minority community.”
“Do you think it is possible that Bernie Sanders wins the nomination?” the moderator asked.
“You never know,” Pelosi said. “And I am a big fan of [former Maryland Governor] Martin O’Malley’s as well. He’s just fabulous.”
