Pelosi Being Honored With JFK Award 05/19 08:50
BOSTON (AP) -- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is being honored with the 2019
John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.
Pelosi is being recognized for her efforts to pass former President Barack
Obama's 2010 health care law and for helping Democrats reclaim control of the
U.S. House during last year's elections.
Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the late president, calls the California
Democrat "the most important woman in American political history."
Kennedy said Pelosi, who has served in the House since 1987, "leads with
strength, integrity and grace under pressure."
The award is being presented to Pelosi in a Sunday evening ceremony at the
John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston.
