Biden Won’t Endorse Pelosi for Speaker

"It's just too early for me to suggest who they should pick – a lot of new members."

Former Vice President Joe Biden would not endorse House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-MA) to be the next speaker of the House if Democrats retake control the chamber after the 2018 midterms. He made the remarks while speaking with reporters on Tuesday after voting in Delaware.

A reporter asked Biden if he thought Pelosi should be the next speaker if Democrats are successful in retaking control of the House or if it’s time for a new leader.

“Oh, I like Nancy a lot. My guess is that she’ll end up being leader, but that’s for them to decide,” Biden said. “You know, when I was in the Senate, I never listened to anybody’s advice on who should be the Senate leader, and I’m not going to suggest who the House should have as their leader.”

Biden added that he thought Pelosi had done “a hell of a job,” but that “it’s just too early for me to suggest who they should pick – a lot of new members.”
