Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday welcomed former Rep. Beto O’Rourke to the 2020 presidential race, praising the Texas Democrat for both his energy and his work on the environment and national defense.
“Beto brought a great deal of vitality to the Congress,” Pelosi said during a press briefing in the Capitol. “When he came, he came as a real champion for the environment, he got a great deal of support from the environmental community in his district. He won in a primary on that subject. Also, he was … a strong member of the Armed Services Committee, which is very important for his district.
“So in preserving our planet and protecting our people, there are at least two areas in addition to his vitality.”
