Congresswoman Karen Bass just landed a key endorsement in her race for Mayor with the announcement of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s support. Pelosi made the endorsement of fellow representative Bass in a video message online, characterizing the Congresswoman as a “coalition builder”.

“She is masterful at bringing people together to work on big problems by staying focused on shared values. As her colleague and friend, I have seen Karen fight for social and economic justice for the people. She fights for health care for our families and education for our children. Karen fights to meet the kitchen table needs of Los Angeles families and of families across America. What keeps you up at night is what keeps her up at night as she works on solutions that will make a difference in people’s lives.

“As a former nurse, educator, Speaker of the California Assembly and now a leader in Congress, Karen brings vast experience that has been essential as the Congress has addressed the challenges of our time, including the pandemic,” Pelosi continued. “Karen is ready to put that wealth of knowledge and experience to work for the people where the rubber meets the road as mayor of Los Angeles. It is my honor and privilege to support my outstanding colleague and friend, Congresswoman Karen Bass — the next mayor of Los Angeles.”

Bass currently leads the field of candidates in the Los Angeles mayoral race, which includes City Councilmembers Joe Buscaino and Kevin de Leon, City Attorney Mike Feuer, real estate mogul Rick Caruso and San Fernando businessman Mel Wilson.

Pelosi is the latest of an impressive list of endorsements Bass has racked up including U.S. Senator Cory Booker, former L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Congressmembers Adam Schiff, Ted Lieu, Katie Porter and Alan Lowenthal, County Supervisors Holly Mitchell and Sheila Kuehl, labor leader Dolores Huerta, California Lt. Governor Eleni Kounalakis, California Assemby members Mike Gibson, Chris Holden and Isaac Bryan, State Senators Steve Bradford and Sydney Kamlager, Emily’s List and retired Senator Barbara Boxer.

The primary is scheduled for Tuesday, June 7, 2022.
