House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-ca) Confirmed Tuesday Afternoon To The Boston Globe That She Intends To Serve As Speaker Of The House If Democrats Win The 2018 Midterm Election.
“We will win. I will run for speaker. I feel confident about it. And my members do, too,” Pelosi told the Globe in an interview in Boston.
Pelosi served as the nation’s first female Speaker of the House from 2007 to 2011. She was known for centralizing power in the Speaker’s office and backed the late Rep.

Congress also passed massive increases in domestic spending on Pelosi’s watch.
