Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rode in the annual San Francisco Pride Parade, which is among the largest in the United States. The parade marches through the middle of Pelosi’s 11th Congressional District, and each year, she’s seen atop a convertible celebrating equality.
This year, however, she seems to have welcomed a new person to join her. The guest is turning political analysts to question whether the joint parading means the top California Democrat has made her choice for the U.S. Senate primary race.
Pelosi was all smiles with a rainbow wristband, waving the progress pride flag. Schiff sat atop the red convertible clad in khakis, flashed a rainbow wristband, and waved the progress pride flag.
Schiff is facing off against Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA), who has made a name for herself in politics by hammering CEOs and corporate leaders.
The San Francisco Chronicle revealed that Porter was on hand for events that day in San Francisco, including at the Alice B. Toklas LGBTQ+ Democratic Club annual pride breakfast. It was the 26th annual breakfast where Porter and Schiff joined state Sen. Scott Wiener, San Francisco Mayor London Breed, and Montana state Rep. Zooey Zephyr, the transgender lawmaker that has been banned from speaking on the chamber floor by Republicans.
