Pelosi: 'McConnell Is Not a Force for Good in Our Country'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Monday on MSNBC “All In” that Democrats must win control of the Senate because Senate MajorityLeader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was “not a force for good in our country.” Pelosi said, “One of the things that is so appalling about this judicial appointment right now is they want that person in there to further undermine our democracy.

This is the most openly pro-life judicial nominee to the Supreme Court in my lifetime. This is an individual who has been open in her criticism of that illegitimate decision Roe v. Wade. This is a nominee who has been open about her faith and her faith commitments and the way she and her husband live their lives
