Nancy Pelosi brings women’s economic campaign to Boston

House minority leader Nancy Pelosi rode into Boston on a large purple bus Monday to raise money, bolster a vulnerable Massachusetts Democrat, and champion her party’s economic agenda for equal pay, affordable child care, and paid sick leave for women.

Pelosi’s bus tour, which included US Representative John F. Tierney and other members of the Massachusetts delegation, stopped at a Hyde Park industrial park where Pelosi was greeted by a warm, cheering crowd. After the event, the Democratic leader stressed that her visit to the Hub was about sending a strong message to Republicans about key bread-and-butter issues, rather than mere politics.
