Pelosi, Schumer Say They’re Comfortable With Sanders As Democratic Nominee

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday said she is comfortable with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) as the Democratic presidential nominee in November.

Pelosi’s remarks came during a chat with reporters as she was leaving a closed-door meeting in the House Wednesday morning.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday also said that he would be comfortable with the Vermont senator as his party’s nominee.

“Look, the bottom line is very simple. We have a lot of strong nominees. … I’m not supporting one over the other, but I think every one of them will beat President Trump,” Schumer said.

Sanders has surged to front-runner status after winning the popular vote in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada.

The Vermont Senator has also cut into former Vice President Joe Biden’s once-sizable lead in South Carolina, which is seen as a bellwether primary state with its large African American population.

In the latest NBC News-Marist poll, Biden held a 27 percent-23 percent lead over Sanders in South Carolina.
