Pelosi Tells Superdelegates to Back Off
Posted on Mar 5, 2008
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has once again warned superdelegates to stay out of the nominating process until they are needed: “The electoral process has to work its way.” Hillary Clinton has a strong advantage among superdelegates, but Barack Obama is rumored to have a large group prepared to announce for him.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) expressed confidence Wednesday that Democratic primary and caucus voters will settle on a presidential nominee before the Democratic convention in August, with no need for party leaders to weigh in.
“The electoral process has to work its way,” Pelosi said in a session with reporters Wednesday morning. “I was never among those who thought this would be resolved by now.”
