In a sign that moderate Democrats are seriously worried about where their nomination process is heading, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) warned Friday that the rush to attract left-wing votes is making the party less electable — and increasing President Trump’s chances of a second term. Pelosi is being careful not to back any of the candidates herself, but it’s obvious her worries are being stoked by left-wing favorites Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
Pelosi told journalists, “What works in San Francisco does not necessarily work in Michigan. What works in Michigan works in San Francisco — talking about workers’ rights and sharing prosperity.” This is a thinly-disguised warning about focusing on issues that matter to radical leftists but are repellent to the average American. She also pointed out that Democrats have to win the Electoral College — and many College members in moderate states aren’t going to help put a far-left candidate in the White House.
Moving on, she took a direct swipe at the real threats while warning other candidates not to compete on the same extreme ground — “Bernie and Elizabeth own the left, right? Is anybody going to out-left them?”
