While basketball fans nationwide have already filled out their March Madness brackets, lawmakers also discuss the tournament on Capitol Hill, including teams they’re rooting for and lineups they’ve predicted.
However, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that while she is “March mad,” she doesn’t want anyone to lose.
In typical politician form, the California Democrat said she loves all sports but has “a lot of allegiances” to the colleges who are participating in March Madness.
“I don’t even want anybody to lose, I’m just rooting for everybody, especially the players,” she said. “I want them all to succeed whatever team they’re on.”
