Pelosi Endorses Leno For State Senate In Democratic Primary

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has endorsed state Assemblyman Mark Leno in a contentious Democratic primary for state Senate.

Pelosi announced her endorsement in an appearance with the three-term San Francisco legislator in the city Saturday.

Leno is running against incumbent state Sen. Carole Migden and former state Assemblyman Joe Nation for the district encompassing Marin County and parts of San Francisco and Sonoma County.

The race has split California Democrats, with the state's two U.S. Senators supporting Migden and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom backing Leno.

The primary has also fueled tension in San Francisco's gay community. Both Migden and Leno are gay.
