Nancy Pelosi Is Glad To See Jim Demint Go
The House minority leader blames DeMint after Senate Republicans block disabilities treaty. “Anyone who’s a party to that, I wish them well wherever they are going,” Pelosi says.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi won’t miss Sen. Jim DeMint when he leaves the Senate next month.
DeMint will resign to head up the conservative Heritage Foundation, he announced Thursday.
But Pelosi isn’t gutted by his decision — particularly in light of what happened earlier this week, when a group of conservative Republican senators blocked ratification of a U.N. disabilities treaty.
“I think what we saw the night before last in the U.S. Senate was one of the saddest…of all occasions,” Pelosi told reporters.
