U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exhorted thousands of Democrats to defeat Republican President Donald Trump and take control of the Senate in 2020.
The California Democrat was the keynote speakers at Wednesday’s Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association brunch. The annual affair kicked off Governor’s Day at the Illinois State Fair .
She congratulated Illinois Democrats for adopting monumental laws in the first few months of Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s term and ticked off legislation approved in the U.S. House which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky has barred from votes. Pelosi referred to him by the derisive “Moscow Mitch” with which detractors have labeled him and says public sentiment is on Democrats’ side for expanding health care, lowering drug costs, and green infrastructure improvements.
