On Tuesday, KTVU sat down for a one-on-one interview with Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to discuss the House Minority Leader’s family, faith and thoughts on today’s political climate.
Nancy Pelosi is a San Francisco institution. Loved by many, scorned by others, there’s no denying her political acumen and success.
She was first elected to congress 30 years ago and climbed her way through the political power structure to become Speaker of the House, achieving the highest political office ever held by a woman in this country.
How did she get there and where did she come from? KTVU’s Ken Wayne sat down with Congresswoman Pelosi for a one-on-one interview.
Nancy Pelosi grew up in Baltimore, Maryland to a devout Catholic, Italian American family. Her father was a member of Congress. They were fiercely patriotic and staunchly Democratic. She was raised to believe that public service was calling.
Nancy Pelosi met her husband in Washington D.C. while she was at Trinity College and he was at Georgetown University. They moved to San Francisco in 1969 where they raised their 5 children and she began her political career.
Democrats faced a tough loss in 2016. It’s no surprise that Pelosi is front and center in the party’s effort to regain control of the House. She remains optimistic in her fight for issues important to California.
However, something bizarre occurred during the interview. KTVU experienced a technical difficulty as the reporter asked Pelosi if she is holy. As Pelosi responds, the feed cuts to a weather report. Perhaps a sign from God? See for yourself.
