Assembly Speaker Rendon pitches the big tent

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Speaker Rendon touts the diverse nature of the Democratic caucus and the importance of working with his colleagues across the aisle.

New Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon doesn't believe the emergence of a less-liberal, more pro-business wing of his big Democratic caucus is going to set off a high-visibility war among Democrats.

"I don't know if the party has ever been monolithic," Rendon said in a telephone interview. "We've always been a big-tent party, with a diversity of viewpoints reflecting the diversity of California."
