WASHINGTON (AP) — For politicians, you gotta go with the people who sent you there.

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi says she'll be rooting for San Francisco, the city she has represented in Congress for the past quarter-century, over Baltimore, the city where she was born and raised, when it comes to the Super Bowl.

Pelosi says her late father, as mayor of Baltimore, built Baltimore Memorial Stadium and that she has long been a fan of Baltimore sports teams, including the Ravens.

But she points out that her constituency is San Francisco — and that her children grew up going to games with 49er greats such as Joe Montana and Steve Young.

Pelosi puts it this way: "I'm rooting for the 49ers. ... I'm not rooting against Baltimore."
