Nancy Pelosi Leading Congressional Delegation To Cuba

Who ever thought we'd see this day?
Nancy Pelosi Leading Congressional Delegation To Cuba

That's a headline I never imagined I'd write, but it's true. Nancy Pelosi is in Cuba today with a Congressional delegation, according to Politico:

“This delegation travels to Cuba in friendship and to build upon the announcement of U.S. normalization of relations and other initiatives announced by President Obama,” Pelosi (D-Calif.) said. “This delegation will work to advance the U.S.-Cuba relationship and build on the work done by many in the Congress over the years, especially with respect to agriculture and trade.”

The delegation includes Democratic Reps. Eliot Engel of New York, Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut, Collin Peterson of Minnesota, Anna Eshoo of California, Nydia Velázquez of New York, Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, Steve Israel of New York and David Cicilline of Rhode Island. Engel is the ranking member of the Foreign Affairs Committee.

Let's hope this signals a long and mutually prosperous partnership for both countries.
