Will she or won’t she?
According to a Fox News report, President Joe Biden is urging soon-to-be ousted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to stick around after the Republicans take control of the House of Representatives.
From Fox News:
Biden called Pelosi after midterm election results started coming in to request that she stay on for his final two years in office. Pelosi has rebuffed questions about her political future, but the 82-year-old is rumored to be considering retirement.
“I hope you stick,” Biden is said to have told her in a phone call. “I know it’s family first, but I hope you stick.”
While Democrats performed far better than expected in the midterm elections, Republicans still appear to be taking control of the House.
“The Speaker has not made a decision about her future. As the Speaker just stated yesterday on national TV, she will make a decision once all the votes have been counted,” said Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill. “She’s not even thinking about her future at this moment.”
“The speaker will make an announcement when she makes an announcement,” Hammill told Fox News Digital. “Until then, let’s all enjoy watching Kevin McCarthy lose a speakership his party hasn’t even won in the first place.”
