So if they held a convention and nobody came would it still make a noise?
Talk about a party in complete disarray.
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi says that Democratic members should stay home and campaign in their districts rather than go to the party’s national convention in North Carolina.
“I’m not encouraging anyone to go to the convention, having nothing to do with anything except I think they should stay home, campaign in their districts, use their financial and political resources to help them win their election,” Pelosi said in an exclusive interview for POLITICO Live’s On Congress, a new weekly show to be streamed live on POLITICO’s website and broadcast on NewsChannel 8 on Wednesdays.
Pelosi also criticized Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for not releasing more years of his tax returns – “the American people seem to want to know,” she said.
“His father set the standard for transparency… This is a tradition that he is breaking not only personal in his family but for candidates for President of the United States. You want to run for President, the ante is upped,” Pelosi told POLITICO Live.
But when asked whether she would release her own tax returns to make it clear that Democrats are more transparent, the minority leader simply joked, “When I run for President, I will.”
