Pelosi Announces Run For House Minority Leader

If Pelosi is announcing that she is running for House Minority Leader, it would be a safe bet that will get the position. It is doubtful she would have made such an announcement before making sure she had the votes. Meanwhile, she is getting some support from a surprising source; RNC Headquarters.

"Outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said this afternoon that she is running to become the House minority leader in the next session of Congress, dispelling rumors that she planned to resign from House Democratic leadership or retire from Congress.

Pelosi, D-Calif., explained her decision in a letter to House Democrats, revealing that she had been widely encouraged to seek the post.

"Many of our colleagues have called with their recommendations on how to continue our fight for the middle class, and have encouraged me to run for House Democratic leader," Pelosi wrote. "Based on those discussions, and driven by the urgency of protecting health care reform, Wall Street reform, and Social Security and Medicare, I have decided to run."
