Rep. Veasey Backs Pelosi in Speaker's Race
“Leader Pelosi is the best strategist in either party. With an exciting new freshman class, our party is gaining a deeper bench. That’s a great position to be in, but it also requires a progressive, resolute leader who has proven time and again that she can counteract the Republican Party and President Trump to prioritize the Democrats' legislative agenda. We need her whip-smart negotiating skills to lead us through a smooth transition for the next two years.
Leader Pelosi has shown that she is open to new ideas that harness the power and diversity of our party to best represent the vast majority of Americans and their ideals. I look forward to working with her on an aggressive agenda to address voting rights, healthcare, infrastructure, and immigration in the new Congress.”
