Pelosi to appear at Texas Democrats' virtual state convention

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has made it plain that Texas is her top target for the 2020 elections, will appear as the “special guest” of the Texas Democratic Party’s State Convention next week.

The convention, which will run June 1-6, is being conducted virtually in response to the coronavirus pandemic. (Before the pandemic reached Texas, the convention had been slated for San Antonio’s convention center.) Texas Republicans are planning an in-person convention in Houston in mid-July.

“It is an honor to join Democrats from the Lone Star State and share my message of belief, hope and opportunity during the Texas Democratic Convention,” said Pelosi, a Californian who is the first and only women to have served as speaker. “As I’ve stated previously, Texas is ground zero for this election.”

“The big and bold work happening at the Texas Democratic Party is why we will strengthen our House Democratic majority, elect more Democrats across the state, and elect a Democratic president of the United States, Joe Biden, in November,” Pelosi said.

1. Wonderful.

She was our keynote speaker last summer at our Governor's Day brunch in Illinois. The Texas Democrats will enjoy this.
