HOUSE DEMOCRATIC LEADER NANCY PELOSI ENDORSES REPRESENTATIVE MIKE HONDA FOR REELECTION TO CALIFORNIA’S 17TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

SILICON VALLEY (January 30, 2013) — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi has issued the following statement endorsing Representative Mike Honda (CA-17) for reelection in 2014:

“Congressman Mike Honda’s life has been a tribute to the quintessential American ideals of equality and opportunity for all. From a childhood spent in an internment camp, Mike has risen to the heights of American leadership – as one of the top Democrats on the powerful Appropriations Committee and a critical voice for fairness, the rights of LGBT couples and all families. Mike is a bold and effective leader who understands the needs of Silicon Valley and the 17th District, ensuring American competitiveness and fighting for American manufacturing, comprehensive immigration reform, STEM education, and technological innovation. We need his continued leadership for our nation in the House of Representatives, and I am proud to endorse him.”

In response, Congressman Honda makes the following statement:

“It is a great honor to receive the endorsement today of my friend, Leader Nancy Pelosi.  Since my first campaign for Congress in 2000, Leader Pelosi’s guidance, support, and leadership have been imperative.  She is the beacon of our Democratic Party here in the Bay Area and throughout the nation, and I am thankful for her endorsement. I am proud to represent one of the nation’s most diverse districts, here in Silicon Valley – our nation’s hub of technology and innovation – and I look forward to continue working with Leader Pelosi on an agenda that keeps our Valley and our nation moving forward.”
