Watch: Rep. Linda Sanchez says Pelosi and other Democratic leaders should move on

Rep. Linda Sanchez said Thursday it is time for Democratic leaders to pass the torch to a new generation.

In an interview to air on C-SPAN this weekend, the Whittier Democrat also touched on gun safety laws, immigration reform and the prospective tax overhaul. But the most striking moment came near the end of the discussion when Sanchez was asked if Democrats should keep their current leaders after the 2018 election.

The Times' Sarah D. Wire and the Washington Post's Ed O'Keefe conducted the interview with Sanchez for C-SPAN's "Newsmakers," which airs Sunday at 7 a.m. PST and 3 p.m. PST.
