Western Journalism: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi expressed little patience with a reporter who questioned whether the former speaker of the house would have the support needed to take up her old post should the Democrats prevail in November.
“It is the least important question you could ask, with all due respect to your list of questions there,” she told NPR’s Scott Detrow in a story published on Tuesday.
Regarding her support among the Democrat caucus, Pelosi said, “We have 430 candidates. How many have you heard from?”
By NBC News’ count, 57 Democratic candidates and incumbents are on record saying they will not support Pelosi for speaker.
