Pelosi Statement on Tuesday’s Primaries

Washington, D.C. — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi today released the following statement after primaries in California, New Jersey, Iowa, New Mexico and four other states:

“From the heartland of America to the coasts, American voters sent the Republican Majority a powerful message of rejection of the GOP’s relentless efforts to destroy health care and reward the special interests.

“Thanks to the strength of the grassroots and our strategic investments, California has advanced an extraordinary set of battle-tested and diverse Democrats to the November ballot. Across America, we are seeing strong performances from Democratic candidates with clear vision and powerful personal stories.

“As primary results continue to come in, it is clear that hard-working American families are rejecting the Republicans’ raw deal and are choosing the Democrats’ A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages and Better Future for them and their children.”
