Nancy Pelosi to Remain House Minority Leader

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, who has served as the highest-ranking female politician in American history, will stay on as the top Democrat in the House during the coming 113th Congress, CBS News has learned.

Pelosi's decision comes in the wake of an election in which her party picked up as many as seven House seats but fell short of the 25 necessary to retake control of the chamber. While Pelosi must run for reelection to her minority leadership position, no Democrats has made a move to seriously challenge her.
