After nearly 20 years as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi declared that she will not run for re-election in her role as leader, the House Democratic Conference. This comes after her party narrowly lost its majority in the midterm elections.
The announcement was made by the 82 year-old Californian on Thursday at the House floor. After Paul, her husband, was brutally attacked at their San Francisco house, speculation has grown about Pelosi’s future. Also, Democrats lost control of Congress in the midterm elections.
Since 2003, Pelosi has been leading House Democrats, including two four-year stints in the role of speaker.
After the election results began to come in, President Biden called Pelosi last Wednesday. He said that he wanted her to stay. “I know it is family first, but you should stick to your guns.” Despite Democrats’ impressive performance in the midterm elections the Republicans retained control of the House.
