It’s rare to make it through a commercial break on the radio when driving through Atlanta’s suburbs without being told that Jon Ossoff would be nothing more than a rubber-stamp for Nancy Pelosi if elected to Congress, even if you’re listening to a Spanish station—yet Ossoff claims that he hasn’t given “an ounce of thought” to whether he would vote for her to lead the caucus.
Ossoff first said he hadn’t given “an ounce of thought” to voting for Pelosi in an April 20 interview with CNN, saying that he was “focused on winning an election here in Georgia’s 6th District,” not a “leadership contest that’s at least a year and a half away.”
The Washington Post asked him the question again for a May 1 story, and he again said he hadn’t given it “an ounce of thought” because he’s “focused on winning here in Georgia’s 6th District,” not a “hypothetical leadership contest a year and a half or more down the road.” The New York Times reported on Sunday that Ossoff told them he hadn’t given an “ounce of thought” to whether he would vote for Pelosi. Politico was told by Ossoff that he hadn’t “given an ounce of thought” to the same question.
The Ossoff campaign didn’t respond to questions into whether Ossoff plans to think about supporting Pelosi before the June 20 election. An interview request with Ossoff was denied.
