Today I’m excited to endorse @NancyPelosi for Speaker of the House of Representatives.

It’s really important that all progressives push to elect her in the coming weeks, for 3 good reasons.

Short thread below.
1. From 2007-11, @NancyPelosi was the most effective and progressive Speaker of the House in many decades.

If the bills she passed out of the House had made it out of the Senate as well, we would be living in a dramatically better world.
On issues from climate change to labor law, a public option to financial regulation, campaign finance to voting rights, @NancyPelosi organized and supported a bold progressive agenda.

She has pledged to be even bolder next year.
2. The chief opposition to her leadership is coming from a small group of centrist white male Democrats. If they succeed in defeating her, we will likely end up with someone significantly more conservative. That would be a major loss for our movement.
3. This is the most important one: even if you disagree with my assessment above, the progressive movement needs to work in a coordinated fashion. We have to be a team. And our team leaders, the @USProgressives, have endorsed. I’m following their lead.…
Reps @RepJayapal & @MarkPocan held off on endorsing. They negotiated. And in exchange for their support, they secured genuine power for the progressive caucus. I told @NancyPelosi I supported them, and now I’m proud to endorse her alongside them.

You should too. #teampelosi
Next up, we need to push hard, together, to put @RepBarbaraLee in leadership.

Who’s with me? #LeeForLeadership
