Malinowski supports Pelosi

New congressman says Pelosi pledged support for Gateway Tunnel

Rep.-elect Tom Malinowski (D-Rocky Hill) will vote for Nancy Pelosi to be the next Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

“In recent days, I have spoken with Congresswoman Pelosi about the needs of our state, and I believe that she shares our fundamental concerns.  For example, she has told me that she will support taking action next year to address the SALT deduction issue, and to ensure that the federal government keeps its promise to help fund the Gateway Tunnel project,” Malinowski said,  “I have also heard from many voters in the district, including at a public meeting Wednesday night, who have urged me to support Congresswoman Pelosi, and from others across the state, including over 120 New Jersey women leaders who have endorsed her candidacy.”

During his campaign to unseat Rep. Leonard Lance (R-Clinton), Malinowski declined to say who he would support for speaker.

“My decision is influenced by larger concerns that inspired me to run for Congress.  This is pivotal moment in our history. Americans are dangerously divided. We have a president who disdains and seeks to undermine the most sacred norms of our democracy,” Malinowski said “Democrats have won nothing more than a fragile foothold in one House of Congress, from which we must try to apply checks and balances, and to deliver for voters who are losing hope that Congress can deliver anything.”
