Nancy Pelosi praises Bernie Sanders for energizing young voters

Nancy Pelosi

Top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi is praising Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for getting more young people “interested in the political process” as he mounts a surprisingly strong race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The California congresswoman says that “history will record that Bernie Sanders’ candidacy has had a very wholesome effect.”

Pelosi spoke as House Democrats are closing out a team-building conference aimed at building unity and sharpening the party’s message heading into the November elections.

She was responding to a question about whether Sanders’ candidacy will hurt Democrats’ chances this election.

Pelosi has steered clear of endorsing a candidate in the party’s three-way primary but is regarded as a supporter of Hillary Clinton.
