Nancy Pelosi Insists She Wants to Be Speaker Again

Disputing reports to the contrary


The office of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) pushed back hard Friday against a report indicating the House minority leader is not interested in the Speaker's gavel if Democrats win back the House.

"The Leader fully intends to be a Member of a Democratic Majority in the 114th Congress," Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said in an email. "The rest is up to her colleagues, as the Leader has long stated publicly."
