Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi hit the House floor on Thursday to share what she will do next now that Republicans have taken over the House, forcing Nancy to give up the gavel. Pelosi says she will not seek a leadership role but will, instead, focus on representing her San Francisco contituents.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she will not run for a leadership post, a move that marks the end of an era and sets up a major shakeup for House Democrats.
Pelosi said she will continue “speaking for the people of San Francisco” as their congresswoman, but not seek re-election to a leadership post.
Her announcement comes after Democrats lost a majority in the lower chamber but maintained control of the Senate in the 2022 midterms, holding off a potentially larger “red wave.”
Pelosi said that when she first visited the capital as a child, she never imagined she would go “from a housewife to House speaker.”
