That whole Democratic party unity thing seems to be going great – after Bernie Sanders refused to endorse him, Jon Ossoff was on CNN this afternoon attempting to hide his support of Nancy Pelosi. Just another example of Ossoff trying to be everything to everyone…
The idea that Ossoff would vote for anyone other than Pelosi is completely disingenuous. He seemed to be perfectly fine with her bankrolling his campaign.
Pelosi hosted a big D.C. fundraiser for Ossoff with Democratic party bosses, she sent fundraising emails on his behalf, and even donated $7,000 to Ossoff’s campaign. Who knows what’s going on with Bernie and Nancy (we hear they aren’t best of buds) but we do know one thing’s for sure – Jon Ossoff’s inability to tell the truth is the one constant of his campaign.
In March 2017, Nancy Pelosi And House Democratic Leadership Hosted A Fundraiser For Ossoff. “Ossoff has raised millions of dollars online from angry activists, and he spent Thursday night at a fundraiser hosted for him by party bigwigs like Reps. Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, James Clyburn and John Lewis at Democratic National Committee headquarters. A Pelosi-signed fundraising email for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee claimed on Thursday that the energy surrounding the race has Republicans ‘terrified.’” (Gabriel Debenedetti, “Democrats Gripped By Special Election Performance Anxiety,” Politico, 3/22/17)

VIDEO: When Asked By CNN’s Ana Cabrera, Ossoff Refused To Answer If He Would Vote For Nancy Pelosi As Leader Or Speaker Should He Be Elected To The House. CNN’s ANA CABRERA: “Ok, ok, so tell me this. Would you vote for Nancy Pelosi as leader or Speaker if the Democrats were to take the majority?” OSSOFF: “I haven’t given it an ounce of thought, and we are a long way from taking back the House.” CABRERA: “Why not?” OSSOFF: “Because I’m focused on winning an election here in Georgia’s sixth district not a potential leadership contest in the U.S. House of Representatives that’s at least a year and a half away.” CABRERA: “But that is how Democrats get things done right? If you’re to be part of that governing body.” OSSOFF: “And there is a lot of time between now and then. There’s plenty of time for Democrats to work out what’s going to happen at the national level. What I can tell you is that here in Georgia’s sixth district, there’s unprecedented unity and it’s not just Democrats. It’s Independents and Republicans who are interested in some fresh leadership that moves beyond partisanship, that moves beyond this kind of ideological rigidity that keeps folks from getting things done in DC.” (CNN Newsroom, 4/20/17)
