U.S. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said she’s weighing whether to attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress next month, while suggesting that other party members may skip his appearance.

“As of now, I am,” Pelosi, of California, said of her possible attendance at Netanyahu’s scheduled March 3 address. “My hope is the event will not take place.”
