Explaining why she has refused to debate her Republican challenger, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that raising money for Democratic candidates “across the country” is a higher priority for her.”
A video posted at Republican John Dennis’s Web site, shows Pelosi being asked, “”Would you be open to debating your Republican opponent John Dennis in San Francisco?”
Pelso reponds: “Let me tell you what my priorities are. My priorities are to elect a Democratic Congress. In order to do that, it is essential for me - time is money for me. [Traveling] around this country, to amass the resources to put my candidates on TV. Whether I get a bigger majority or not in my district is not the point.”
Dennis first requested a debate with Pelosi a month ago, and recorded a humorous video about her refusal to debate:
