House Democrats nominated Nancy Pelosi to serve as speaker in the next session of Congress.
“There was a move to put limits on the leadership and the chairs of committees. They said they were going to do it, they didn’t do it. But what I said then, was whether it passes or not, I will abide by those limits,” Pelosi said, adding, “I can’t wait to be working with Joe Biden … I don’t want to undermine any leverage I may have, but I made the statement.”
All House members will pick the speaker when the new Congress convenes in early January. Pelosi already has served six years in the job.
