WASHINGTON--House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is expected to announce on Wednesday whether she will seek to be re-elected to the top Democratic leadership post in the House. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) is leading a charge to get her to stay. There has been talked about Pelosi stepping aside.
"Progressives are trying to get the word out, 'we want her to stay,''' Schakowsky told me Tuesday night. When Schakowsky talked to Pelosi on Tuesday, Pelosi "sounded ambivalent" about staying.
Asked Tuesday whether she would stay as the Democratic Leader, Pelosi said, "Let's see, what time is it now? It's 2 o'clock on Tuesday. I'll see you right here 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. While I love you all very dearly, I thought maybe I would talk to my own Caucus before I shared that information with you. So, I'll see you 10 o'clock tomorrow morning. Okay?"
