Nancy Pelosi Announcement: House Democrat Reportedly Remaining Minority Leader
VIA Huffington Post Politics
Nancy Pelosi will keep her post as House Minority leader in the next congressional term, according to CNN and ABC News.
The California Democrat will technically have to run to keep her post, though she is not expected to face opposition to continue serving in the leadership role.
Pelosi was expected to announce her plans for her political future on Wednesday morning.
She remained tight-lipped on her decision ahead of a press conference on Capitol Hill. “I will see you 10 a.m., tomorrow, those of you who are interested,” the House leader said on Tuesday.
Progressives launched a last-minute bid the night before Pelosi’s announcement urging her to stay.
The AP reports:
This official says the 72-year-old Pelosi made the decision to remain at the helm of the party’s House leadership even though Democrats failed to win the necessary 25 additional seats to become the majority party again. … Pelosi’s quarter-century of service in Congress representing a San Francisco area district in the House includes becoming the first woman in history to serve as speaker. The tea party-fueled political wave of 2010 forced the gavel from her hand to Rep. John Boehner, an Ohio Republican.
