House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said on Wednesday that anti-abortion Democrats can “absolutely” still be included in the pro-choice party.
The Hill reported that Hoyer reaffirmed the party’s pro-choice platform while also declaring that neither he nor House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) believe Democrats should “exclude people who have a different view.”
Hoyer’s comments came the day after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) endorsed Marie Newman, the progressive primary challenger to Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL). Lipinski opposes abortion but has maintained the support of most establishment Democrats.
