House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that when Sunday dawns, she is more a praying woman and far less a partisan politician.

This latest Sunday, she sympathized for Rep. Eric Cantor and his loss to upstart Dave Brat, The Hill reported.

“I was thinking about it on Sunday when I was praying for the Republicans in church, as I do at least every Sunday,” Ms. Pelosi said, during a press conference on Capitol Hill. “I pray for the Democrats and the Republicans, for our country.”

Just last week, Ms. Pelosi was taking a more mocking tone with Mr. Cantor, quipping about his loss: “I have as much sympathy for Mr. Cantor as he would want me to have for him.”

But now, The Hill reported, she’s turned compassionate.

“If I had any sympathy about what happened last week, it wasn’t so much about toppling a leader. … It was really about how sad it must be to lose in your own district. For that, I have sympathy,” she said. “Power comes and goes here, but the connection you have to your district is such a deeply rooted thing. I feel sad for him in that regard.”
