WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday she will run for a 19th term in office, signaling that she could also seek to continue leading her caucus after earlier saying she would step down from leadership after 2022.
The 81-year-old California lawmaker was the first woman to serve as speaker and had been expected to step down, particularly as her party braces for a possible loss of its majority in the Nov. 8 midterm elections.
