Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez wouldn’t say during an interview Wednesday whether he thinks House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is a burden on Democratic congressional candidates.

CNN’s John Berman asked Perez about the growing number of Democratic congressional candidates who say they will not support Pelosi if elected, and what Perez thinks of this.

Perez attempted to dodge the question by talking about health care, and the GOP tax bill.

Berman pressed Perez, and asked him directly whether he thinks Pelosi is a burden to Democratic congressional candidates.

“Listen every Democrat running for office is going to do what they think is the best interest for their district,” Perez said. “Nancy Pelosi is responsible for the passage of the Affordable Care Act. We wouldn’t have coverage for people with preexisting conditions without the leadership of Nancy Pelosi.”

“Every person whos running in a particular district is going to make their judgment,” Perez said.
