Steny Hoyer respectfully disagrees with her choice.
Included in the Hoyer press release sent out after the Pelosi endorsement:
Nancy told me some time ago that she would personally support Jack. I respect her decision as the two are very close.
I am grateful for the support I have from my colleagues, and have the majority of the caucus supporting me. I look forward to working with Speaker Pelosi as Majority Leader.
This will be an interesting test for those who think the new congress has a liberal mandate. I wonder which way Gabby will vote?
