SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) dropped by the Central Subway construction project at San Francisco’s Moscone Center Tuesday to campaign for the election of House Democrats.
House Minority Leader Pelosi used the ongoing transportation project to leverage the Democrats’ Middle-Class Jumpstart campaign to regain control of the House in November. She spoke at the future site of the subway’s Moscone Center Station.
“Right now there’s a stalling of the middle class, because there’s a stalling of these kinds of initiatives. We want to remove that,” Pelosi said.
She added that Republicans have blocked long-term investments on the nation’s infrastructure, including projects like the Central Subway “that put Americans to work”.
