A plane from the president’s military fleet carrying the body of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, accompanied by Rep. Nancy Pelosi, arrived in San Francisco on Saturday evening.

Feinstein, who shared a long friendship with Pelosi, a fellow California Democrat, died Thursday night following months of declining health.

“With Dianne, it’s obviously official, it’s political, and it’s very personal,” Pelosi, the former speaker of the House, said Sunday.
“She was my neighbor, my friend. My family loved her personally, politically, in every way. We used to always say, if Dianne and I ran against each other, my daughter Nancy would probably vote for Dianne. That was the love that existed,” Pelosi told Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”....

Pelosi’s daughter, Nancy Corinne Prowda, supported Feinstein as she recovered from shingles in May, and Feinstein’s daughter, Katherine, was in the Senate gallery with Pelosi on Friday as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer paid tribute.

“She loved people,” Pelosi said Sunday. “She loved California. She loved America. And to bring her home in the grand way that we did – thank you, President Biden; draped in the flag – she was such a patriot,” Pelosi added.
