Pelosi to seek another term as House Democratic leader

Nancy Pelosi told colleagues Wednesday that she plans to seek another term as House Democratic leader, Fox News confirms.

The longtime California Democratic congresswoman initially stirred speculation when she declined to say a day earlier what her plans were. But she told a packed caucus meeting Wednesday morning that if Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., continues to lead the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she will be happy to place her hat in for another term as minority leader.

“The message is clear from the American people,” she told the caucus meeting while lauding the diversity of the new class of Democratic lawmakers, according to a Democratic leadership aide. “They want us to work together to get things done. And that’s what these folks are here to do. Just like all of you.”
