Nancy Pelosi Steps Down

1863: U.S. President Abraham Lincoln delivers his Gettysburg address beginning: “Four score and seven years ago…”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced that she is stepping down as a Democratic leader in Congress.

“Never did I think I’d go from homemaker to House Speaker,” Pelosi said in remarks from the House floor.

Pelosi, 82, has been a leader among congressional Democrats for 20 years. She said she wouldn’t run for leadership again, but plans to remain as a House lawmaker.

“The hour has come for a new generation to lead the Democratic caucus that I so deeply respect,” she said.

Axios reported that many consider Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) to be Pelosi’s natural successor.

Pelosi wasn’t the only seasoned Democrat to announce that they would be stepping away from their leadership roles.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), 83, and Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), 82, both announced they would also not be running for leadership again while remaining in Congress.

Pelosi’s announcement came shortly after Republicans won control of the House.

The Speaker and I have disagreed frequently and forcefully over the years, but I have seen firsthand the depth and intensity of her commitment to public service,” Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said in a statement.

“There is no question that the impact of Speaker Pelosi’s consequential and path-breaking career will long endure,” he added.
