WASHINGTON (AP) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has formally announced she is seeking re-election to the job. In a letter to House Democrats Wednesday she tells them she already has support from two-thirds of the caucus.
Democrats disgruntled about last week’s election results had pressured Pelosi to delay leadership elections that had been scheduled for this week. They will take place Nov. 30 instead.
But it’s not clear anyone will emerge to challenge Pelosi – especially now that the California Democrat, who is known for her vote-counting skills, has declared that she has the votes.
