[Ed. – Did her running unopposed have anything to do with this great honor being conferred upon her again?]
House Democrats met Wednesday to elect their leaders for the incoming Congress, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi easily winning her caucus’ nomination for another term as speaker.
The speaker announced shortly after Election Day earlier this month that she would seek reelection as leader of the Democratic caucus. Pelosi, who is 80, promised in 2018 that she would not seek reelection as speaker in 2022, meaning that this could be her final term as the most powerful member of the House. Pelosi said on Wednesday she would “abide by” her previous statement saying she would accede with a scrapped plan to impose term limits on the position.
“I don’t want to undermine any leverage I may have, but I made the statement,” Pelosi told reporters.
Pelosi ran unopposed for her party’s nomination for the speakership.
