The speaker announced shortly after Election Day earlier this month that she would seek reelection as leader of the Democratic caucus.

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.
