House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is rejecting criticism from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that she is not receptive to younger members and does not groom them for future leadership roles. Speaking to “60 Minutes” in a wide-ranging interview Sunday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) made the remarks after being asked about herself and other members of House Democratic leadership being in their 80s. “We have [brought young people into the leadership]. You perhaps don’t know,” the top-ranking House Democrat told the program. After being asked by co-anchor Lesley Stahl why Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) had criticized her on the issue of grooming potential successors, Pelosi offered a curt, “I don’t know. You’ll have to ask her, because we are.”
