First Woman Speaker in US History Extends Her Support For Carbajal

For Carbajal

SANTA BARBARA — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, the first woman Speaker in U.S. History and the top Democrat in Congress for more than a decade has endorsed Salud Carbajal for Congress. Pelosi joins Congresswoman Capps in headlining a growing list of more than 100 elected officials, business and community leaders who have endorsed Salud Carbajal for Congress.

Salud Carbajal is a tenacious and effective champion for California’s hard-working families — and he’s the best person to carry forward Congresswoman Lois Capps’ legacy of bipartisan achievement,” Leader Pelosi said. “Carbajal knows how to bring people together to deliver change and expand the opportunities of the Middle-Class families of the Central Coast. I am proud to endorse Salud Carbajal for Congress.”

As the Democratic Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 114th Congress, Pelosi is fighting for bigger paychecks and better infrastructure for America’s middle class families. From 2007-2011, Pelosi served as Speaker of the House, the first woman to do so in American history. Pelosi has led House Democrats for more than a decade.

“It is truly an honor to receive Leader Nancy Pelosi’s endorsement,” stated Salud Carbajal. “I have long admired her work she as the leader of our Party in Congress and her accomplishments as the first woman to serve as the Speaker of the House. I look forward to working with her to deliver results for the Central Coast and bring opportunity and security to middle-class families.”
