Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that her next term as Speaker of the House will be her last, keeping a promise she’d made in 2018 to relinquish power after the next midterm elections.
Speaker of the House told reporters in the Capitol yesterday:
“I don’t want to undermine any leverage I may have, but I made the statement.”
The above comment came shortly after House Democrats had voted privately to nominate her to serve another two years at the top of the Democratic party. Nancy Pelosi led the Democrats since 2003, Her presidency in this position is a record since 1961, since the legendary Rep. Sam Rayburn (Texas) died in office..
