Congresswoman-Elect Jahana Hayes (D-CT) said that she will support House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as the next speaker of the House during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, after previously saying she would not support Pelosi.

MSNBC’s Mike Barnicle asked Hayes whether her opposition to Pelosi as leader of the Democratic caucus has changed since she won her election.

“Well, I came into Washington with an open mind. I said I want to hear all the information, and I want to cast a vote that’s best for the people in my state,” Hayes said. “No one has asked me for a vote other than Nancy Pelosi.”

“At this point, I think it’s unreasonable for anyone to expect a vote when they haven’t even asked,” Hayes added. “So, I am prepared to support Nancy Pelosi in caucus tomorrow, when votes are cast.”

Barnicle followed up by asking Hayes how Pelosi asked Hayes for her support.

Hayes explained that she had a face-to-face meeting with Pelosi last week, where Pelosi laid out her version and asked Hayes for her support.

Hayes added that she was waiting for someone to present a contrast to Pelosi’s vision, but that it never happened.
