Nancy Pelosi just made history on the House floor


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) launched a rarely-attempted House of Representatives filibuster style Hail Mary Wednesday morning, and after breaking through the seven hour mark she approached a historic milestone, which she then passed.

“The House Historian has now confirmed @NancyPelosi has broken the record for the longest continuous speech on the floor of the U.S. House since at least 1909,” LGBTQ rights advocate Charlotte Clymer tweeted Wednesday afternoon.
