Nancy Pelosi praises Bernie Sanders for energizing young voters

1

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.
