Two Democratic candidates in competitive California House races were publicly trying to distance themselves from Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) even as they walked into a D.C. fundraiser she was headlining last week.
California Democrat Gil Cisneros, who is running to replace retiring GOP Rep. Ed Royce, while walking up to attend the fundraiser at a Capitol Hill townhouse declined to respond when asked whether he would vote for Pelosi to keep her Democratic leadership position if he wins his congressional campaign.
Cisneros traveled to Washington, D.C., to attend a July 11 fundraiser hosted by Equality California, an LGBT rights organization, which Pelosi, as well as the state’s Democratic senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein, were headlining to help attract top Democratic donors to the event.
The article goes on to state the following:
Katie Hill, a Democratic candidate who is locked in a tight race against Rep. Steve Knight (R., Calif.) in a district north of Los Angeles, also declined to commit to voting for Pelosi for a leadership post as she entered the same D.C. fundraiser.
Hill said only that she is “taking it one day at a time,” when asked if her attendance at the fundraiser meant she would be supporting Pelosi for speaker if she won the seat and Democrats took over the House majority.
