Pelosi Tells Superdelegates to Back Off
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.”
