When I think of Nancy Pelosi, I think of dignity.

History will note her as the most consequential Speaker of the House of Representatives in history – she is first, last, and always for the people. America owes her a debt of gratitude for her service, patriotism, and dignity.

“With great confidence in our caucus I will not seek re-election to Democratic leadership in the next Congress,” Pelosi said, according to NBC News.

Pelosi’s first stint as House Speaker was from 2007 to 2011. She would assume the role again in 2019.

The Republican Party flipped control of the House of Representatives in last week’s midterm election.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi will go down as one of most accomplished legislators in American history—breaking barriers, opening doors for others, and working every day to serve the American people. I couldn’t be more grateful for her friendship and leadership.
